Karl Stefanovic has unleashed an angry missive at Queensland government moments after learning about the heartbreaking story of how a boy with cerebral palsy was denied the opportunity to quarantine at home.
Sunshine Coast youngster Lenny Silveira is holed up in hotel quarantine in Sydney with his dad Fabio after the pair returned from the US for life-saving brain surgery not available in the US.
The six-year-old was denied an exemption by Queensland Health to be reunited with mum and siblings and quarantine at home, which goes against doctor’s orders for his recovery.
The Today show co-host expressed his fury about Lenny’s ordeal after an live interview with his dad on Wednesday morning.
‘Just have a look at that child there with cerebral palsy, in a hotel quarantine,’ Stefanovic fumed.
‘That is disgusting. I mean, if we can’t make allowances for that kind of thing in this country, I don’t know what has happened to this country.’
More to come.
