CORONAVIRUS — TESTING REGIME

580. Hon ALISON XAMON to the parliamentary secretary representing the Minister for Health:

I refer to the COVID-19 community testing regime.

(1)  Will the government expand current criteria to enable people who are considered vulnerable and may be concerned that they have been exposed to the virus but who do not exhibit symptoms to be tested?

(2)  If not, why not?

Hon ALANNA CLOHESY replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.

ABORIGINAL DEATHS IN CUSTODY

HON ALISON XAMON (North Metropolitan) [9.48 pm]: I rise because I feel that I cannot not speak about the reckoning that is currently occurring in the United States and the global impact that we are starting to see. The murder of George Floyd has sparked an outpouring of outrage about the treatment of black Americans by police. In our own country, we are seeing that Australians are starting to speak out in solidarity, and in response to the situation within our own country and communities.
