Chaos and confusion: Victoria’s public housing coronavirus lockdown

Australia: 3000 residents trapped inside public housing towers brought under sudden lockdown in Melbourne. Residents can be heard yelling for help from windows, friends have been turned away from dropping off care packages and masked police officers are at the end of every corridor. There has been very little information shared with the residents, let alone access to interpreters, social workers or medical staff, who are mostly of a refugee background.
