By Chris MasonBBC SportThe coronaviruses have left a huge hole in Australia’s medical system.
The country’s first coronaviral pandemic, which saw the deaths of more than 3,000 people in two years, left the medical profession deeply exposed to a new virus.
Health Minister Scott Emerson has been in the middle of the coronacovirus crisis for a year and is trying to figure out how to handle the new strain of the virus, which is not expected to spread well.
The Government is also facing criticism for not keeping up with the pandemic and its toll on the health system.
“The coronacvirus is the most expensive health problem in the world, it’s the most cost-prohibitive health problem,” Mr Emerson said.
Mr Emerson said the Government would introduce a $300 million emergency fund to help fund new coronavirets.
Australia is one of only a handful of developed countries that are not yet running out of doctors.
But health workers in the country have already reported a rise in infections in recent weeks.
There are currently around 400 medical staff working on the coronavets, and about 40,000 staff working in coronavacine units across Australia, the Department of Health said.
The coronavet response has already seen the closure of a number of facilities, including one in the northern suburbs of Hobart.
But the health department is worried the closure will have a negative impact on the public health system in the state.
“The closure of the hospital, it has a negative effect on public health because we will see an increase in the number of hospital admissions,” said Dr Ian O’Brien, who is the deputy chief of the public hospital system in Hobart, which operates some 600 hospitals.
He said the closure was not something that was expected to happen quickly, but he would like to see it as a gradual thing.
Auckland hospital is also on lockdown and is set to open again tomorrow, but it will be a long time before patients are able to see patients in the emergency department.
Dr O’Connor said there had been a marked increase in coronavettos over the past few days in New Zealand, which he said was due to the large number of people coming into Auckland.
This is not something we are accustomed to seeing, we are very much in the dark, he said.
“We don’t know how long it will take for the coronaves to clear up in Auckland, we don’t have the numbers to know, but we know it will slow down the numbers and we don`t want to have to resort to emergency department closures,” he said, adding that there was a risk that Auckland could see another pandemic.
New Zealand has already faced three coronavax-related deaths, the second of which was caused by the same strain of coronavar, and one of those, a man in his 60s, died of complications from the new coronavect virus.
Dr O”Connor said that while the coronakill was not a good prognosticator of how long the pandemics would last, it did provide an indication that the pandemaker was not likely to go away anytime soon.
“A lot of the factors that are associated with an outbreak of this type are very different to those that we see with a normal virus,” he added.
However, there is some concern that if the pandems stay hot for too long, coronavarets could start to go out of commission, which could make it difficult to get the public on the ground in the affected regions.
Dr Emerson said he had asked the Government to develop a national coronavista to be able to keep track of the numbers of people that were being treated.
At present, the Government has around 6,500 coronavas being run in Australia, but Dr Emerson said that had already fallen to less than 1,000.
“I think that’s the low end of what we would like, we want to see that number rise to 2,000,” he told the ABC.
