Aboriginal people in prison and out-of-home care suffering under 'punitive' Covid-19 restrictions

"Aboriginal people [in Australia] in prisons are going without soap, and children in out-of-home care are being refused contact with their families under “punitive” restrictions enforced due to Covid-19," says this article from the Guardian. A new report from Change the Record, an Aboriginal-led justice coalition including Amnesty International, the Law Council of Australia, the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Legal Services (Natsils) and National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations (Naccho), "highlights the 'distress and anxiety' about Covid-19 restrictions felt by Aboriginal children and parents in the out-of-home care system."
