Mr Taylor asked the court to order to move those who have tested negative for the virus to another facility. "To hold them there simply exposes them to an extremely and unacceptably high risk of infection and death," he told SBS. sbs.com.au/news/asylum-seeke…

One asylum seeker who has tested positive for COVID-19 in Park Hotel has severe burns to over half his body after a suicide attempt on Nauru. The men in Park Hotel were transferred to Australia to receive medical treatment. At least 13 have COVID-19.
Replying to @AzimiMoz
I am sick with stress for my friends still locked up. I have asthma. If I was in there right now without a vaccination, its likely I would die. They are trapped like a cruise ship on the street. Their bodies are tired. They need freedom and healthcare. This needs to end NOW.

Hearing affirmative consent laws described as common sense in the NSW Parliament has me all kinds of emotional. Silence does not equal consent. Fear does not equal consent.
