Vic Health Minister becomes emotional while discussing situation at stricken aged care facility


Victorian Health Minister Jenny Mikakos has become emotional as she spoke about the distressing situation at Melbourne’s St Basil’s aged care facility, where several people have died.

Ms Mikakos, who is a Greek-Australian said she has found last week particularly distressing as the state experiences further outbreaks across the aged care sector.

“This is a facility that is very close of course to many members of the Greek community and I know they’ve been particularly distressed to see the rising toll of deaths at that facility,” Ms Mikakos said.

The minister took a moment to gather herself before continuing.

    The Governments own website in March show the vulnerable were older Australians. Instead of locking-up healthy people the Age Care facilities and its residents should have been a PRIORITY.

  7. Oljunka Puvelkrag says

    Hah! What a performance. If she was so touched by the plight of elderly people then WHY didn't she manage the COVID quarantine hotels far better than what she did. INSTEAD she got into a fight with the police minister and they could not work together. This is total BS. She is a fraud, a deceiver, a liar and shown to be a complete incompetent. She is more interested in protecting the interests of the unions (as she demonstrated with her fight with the police minister) than she is of the interests of the elderly. This is a pantomime, a performance. BS narrative.

Get in there & get the job done Jenny & Andrew & let's hope the Royal Commission into the Aged Care Sector flushes this out so it can never happen again.

    I thought Australia had it under control after dealing with the cruise ship mess, what happened?We had the very same problem, we thought elderly homes were prepared but they totally misshandled it so we lost a lot of elderly citizens before their time.

  29. Jenny Smith says

    I believe its an ACT….They don't Care and all of a Sudden Andrews saying Condolences every Press Conference i don't believe it…BACK in the Beginning WAY BACK in March/April ANDREWS said" You dont know what we are capable of doing"…He was saying Comply or else…..Hope they dont Murder the Elderly like in N.Y. and other Bolshevik States….Andrews is a Marxist Commie so i expect anything from them…Sutton etc They wanted the Numbers Ramped up ALL OF A SUDDEN 769 CASES in AGED CARE OUT OF NOWHERE???????????????????

  30. Simon Brown says

    You have to question the fitness of a health minister who tears up over a handful of elderly people dying. Of course it’s sad, but imagine a Oncologist who breaks down every time a patient with cancer dies. They’d be useless. I suspect her tears are self-pity anyway because she knows what a monumental mess she’s made.


    the truth is beginning to get through

  32. sue parkes says

    Daniel Andrews has a great deal to answer for but of course he won't!

  33. Teresa Correale says

    Facial expressions and the eyes says lies. Those emotions of the Health Minister is an Academy award winner! By lying to the Australian population about deaths regarding Covid & using scare tactics is called TREASON. The government knows the real statistics. Stop including patients that have died naturally (old age) or heart attacks etc…and saying that they had covid. So, once the real statistics are revealed, the Greek Community would be So Peed off with her because Europeans don't like LIES. Your Health Minister would be a disgrace to the Greek Community which Victoria has a lot of.

    Taken steps TODAY? What you didn't look around the world to see that the average death age was 71???? And your the Health Minister. Are you a joke??????

  36. Vinnie B. says

    HCQ+ZPAK+ZINC not only cures COVID19 it also work as a preventative measure

  37. Pete Blanchette says

    Give them hydroxychloroquine and lets see how they do. Cheap medicine, but seems they don't want to go that route. They want the expensive Vaccine that will kill millions. Remember, Vaccine companies CAN NOT be held liable for their Vaccines.

    Why aren't the sick people immediately taken to the hospitals. Almost no one should be dying in aged care homes during this CONJOB-19 plandemic. They are killing these elderly to add to the CONJOB-19 stats
