Nurses, returned travellers to give first-hand accounts of hotel quarantine program

Nurses and returned travellers will for the first time give their accounts of the state government’s hotel quarantine scheme when the inquiry into the program resumes on Thursday.

The probe, chaired by retired judge Jennifer Coate, will resume at 10am when it will hear from a nurse involved in the scheme. At 11am, an unnamed returned traveller will give evidence followed by another nurse at noon.

At 1pm, returned traveller Hugh de Kretser will front the inquiry, followed by returned travellers Kate Hyslop and Ricky Singh at 3.15pm.

Earlier in the week, the inquiry heard from epidemiologists and established that more than 99 per cent of Victoria’s second wave cases could be traced back to three breaches at two hotels.
