Four Corners 2 May 2022: ‘Profiting from the pandemic’ on ABC
The COVID-19 pandemic has taken millions of lives and cost trillions of dollars, but for some it’s been a golden opportunity.
As the global pandemic took hold and authorities struggled to contain one outbreak after another, one company’s name kept appearing in the news – Aspen Medical.
The company was hardly a household name, but it was hired to provide crucial services in many of the most high-profile coronavirus crises, from the Diamond and Ruby Princess cruise disasters, to the deadly outbreaks in aged care homes.
Four Corners investigates Aspen Medical, the health contractor hand-picked by the federal government for lucrative contracts worth more than a billion dollars.
