Hotel quarantine guests exposed to HIV risk

Hotel quarantine guests exposed to HIV risk. Urgent Health Directive Issued by Safer Care Victoria.

“Safe Care Victoria said yesterday that 243 people that received blood glucose level tests while in hotel quarantine between March 29 and August 20 could be at risk of contracting a bloodborne virus after the same test was reused on multiple people.”

“This presents a low clinical risk of cross-contamination and blood borne viruses — Hepatitis B and C, and HIV.”

Former Labor Leader Bill Shorten said the latest mistake coming out of Victoria was “not good enough.”
