- Australia’s Covid heat is blazing hot as the death count keeps rising higher.
- The surge in Covid infected persons is calling for more healthcare assistance.
- Staff shortages and PPE worries have forced Victoria to declare ‘Code Brown’.
Australia observed the deadliest and most distressing day since the beginning of pandemic, recording 77 Covid deaths by Tuesday afternoon.
With the surging Covid infections, Australian public hospital infrastructure is getting crunched with hospitals facing beds and staff shortages. The central and state governments are constantly brainstorming for new solutions every day to manage Omicron/Covid stress.
As a result, Federal health minister Greg Hunt has activated an agreement with private hospitals to step in and boost the heath care capacity.
Due to this, about 57,000 nurses and over 100,000 hospital staff across the country will now be available for state governments and public hospitals.
