Families transporting deceased relatives to Sydney hospitals during the coronavirus emergency

7NEWS Australia published this video item, entitled “Families transporting deceased relatives to Sydney hospitals during the coronavirus emergency” – below is their description.

Sydney COVID-19 Emergency: “Very sadly we are seeing more families coming in with a family member who is presenting not alive, but dead. That is a terrible situation. What we are hearing is that some families, particularly in south-west Sydney and Western Sydney, are staying at home when they have symptoms and not coming out and getting tested. Can I say to those families, ‘our government, the NSW government, is perhaps not like the governments that you have lived under overseas. We are here to support you and our health system is here to support you” – Brad Hazzard – NSW Health Minister.
