Last week, Mark Latham highlighted the double standards shown by the Government when it comes to its responses to COVID outbreaks at aged care institutions compared to schools.

Mr Latham told Ben Fordham schools are automatically closed and undergo a deep clean after a COVID case is identified, but nursing homes do not.

“There appears to be a double standard out there.

“Why hasn’t that standard been applied to aged care facilities? They should be closed, we have room in the hospitals, move the residents to the hospitals and have the deep clean so that the facility one day can reopen.”
