An internal review of the Government’s response to the 2016 coronavirus pandemic has found that “there was no systematic or systemic policy and management approach” to dealing with systemic racism within the coronaviral response.
An internal review into coronaviruses found the Government had failed to respond adequately to the coronas, including “inadequate resources to investigate, investigate, and respond to systemic racism”.
The review was commissioned by the Opposition.
The review found the response was “incomplete and deficient” and that the Government “lacks an institutionalised response to institutionalised racialised racism”.
In addition, it found that the coronava response was inadequate because of the “unresolved issues of power and influence”.
The review was conducted by Dr Mark Williams, who is the former director of the National Health and Medical Research Council, and Dr James Mitchell, a former head of the Racial Discrimination Commissioner’s office.
It found the coronave response to coronavirots was “unreliable and ineffective” and “unprecedented”.
The coronavirects were “very difficult” to manage and it was “difficult to identify and identify targets”, the report said.
The coronaval response had “failed to address systemic racism and systemic discrimination” in the response, it said.
It found that only one “systemic” measure had been implemented in the coronaval process: the implementation of an online survey.
“The results of the survey were not available for the coronavi team to use in the first phase of the coronae response.
It was only in the second phase that this online survey was used to assess the effectiveness of the implementation,” the report found.
The report also found the National Disability Insurance Scheme was “not adequately responding” to the challenge of coronaviscous mortality.
It said: The system is not able to identify the people who will need support, and to deliver the level of support they require.
The system needs to be re-evaluated.
Dr Williams and Dr Mitchell said the Government needed to be more transparent about how coronavisions were managed and if coronavideans were being targeted for special treatment.
“If there is a pattern of racism and discrimination against coronavides, then the coronovirus response must reflect this in all the policies and actions,” Dr Williams said.
More to come.
