Man stages hunger strike in Vic hotel quarantine

After being forced to undergo compulsory hotel quarantine, Australian citizens refused to meet their dying mother on a hunger strike, seeking a compassionate exemption for returning travelers. James Turbit flew urgently from Belgium to Melbourne on Friday because he didn't have a plane to fly to Perth, where his mother was hospitalized. Turbitt was twice negative for COVD-19 before departure, but was exempt from WA Health to skip quarantine in Melbourne despite showing evidence that his mother was receiving palliative care. Rejected. His mother died sadly on Sunday and he was forced to say goodbye on the internet. He told Sky News that politicians and celebrities who were allowed to skip hotels and be quarantined in private villas, or in the case of Prime Minister Scott Morrison, had a double standard for lodges.
