Who is running Australia? Jane Halton.
By Kirra Tara
There are two bodies addressing Australia’s #coronavirus pandemic.
1. The Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (made up of federal and state/territory chief medical officers).
2. The new National COVID Coordination Commission (made up of corporates and public servants).

Jane Halton is the key advisor to Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison on vaccine solutions.
Halton does have a number of credentials:
*Chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates backed Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) – which the Australian government has given $15 million to!
*Former chairperson of the executive board of the Gates backed WHO.
*Current advisor to Scott Morrison on the National Covid19 Co-Ordination Commission
^Former Head of Dept Health given the task for cutting the health budget by a few billion without touching the multi-billion dollar private health subsidy
But interestingly, Halton sits on the board of Crown Resorts which owns several hotels being used in the quarantine schemes including 2 in Victoria. At least one of these
hotels (Crown Promenade) has reportedly used the same security firm at the centre of Victoria’s latest and biggest outbreak. Isn’t this a major conflict of interest?
Is she the best person to be chairing a review into the Hotel Quarantine Fiasco commissioned by the National Cabinet?
Halton has been on ABC news this week talking up Morrison’s proposed vaccine deal with the ‘Covax Facility’ – which is an alliance co-led by Gavi, the Coalition for Epidemic
Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) and WHO. Its aim is to accelerate the development and manufacture of COVID-19 vaccines, and to guarantee fair ‘and equitable access for
every country in the world’.
Halton is affiliated with these alliances.
Does there not seem to be a glaring number of conflicts of interest here?
I’m curious how one person has so much influence on decision making at this level?
Halton was also a Player for Event 201, a Simulated Coronavirus Pandemic tabletop exercise tasked with leading the policy response to a fictional outbreak scenario, held in
New York in October 2019
Event 201 was produced by Bill Gates and the World Economic Forum.
