'I was so frightened': New program helps high-risk communities isolate

Liberty Victoria expressed alarm at the idea of detaining people who might spread COVID-19 arguing the proposed law would unfairly target those with severe mental health issues.

“We are particularly concerned that people who aren’t intentionally doing the wrong thing ... people who for many reasons have vulnerabilities that make them at risk of not doing the right thing might be detained,” said Liberty Victoria spokeswoman, Gemma Cafarella.
