Disabled community at risk from Omicron

From Afternoons, 1:20 pm on 1 March 2022

The Disability Rights Commissioner at the Human Rights Commission has grave concerns about people's attitudes towards the omicron variant of COVID-19.

Paula Tesoriero is worried that people are now just saying 'oh well we'll all get it' thinking it's as a mild as a common cold, whereby for people with disabilities it can put their lives at risk.

The commissioner speaks to Jesse about why people should not be letting their guard down.
