The following is a genuine post from an Australian doctor who is involved with 27,500 Australian doctors who has stated that Australia is not prepared for what is upon us when it comes to dealing with COVID-19.
This gives additional weight to the open letter that 3,500 doctors in Australia have currently penned to the government demanding similar measures are put in place immediately.
Once the doctors had done the basic maths on the current rates the 452 cases as of today in Australia will rise to more than 750 on Friday, 15,000 on Tuesday next week, 3,000 next Saturday, 6,000 on the first of April and 12,000 by the 4th of April.
This means that Australia will be WORSE than Italy with 12,000 infected in just three weeks, health services will be swamped and will mean the sick will be left to die, thousands of doctors warn.
The opinions and views of Dr April Armstrong remain her views only and any medical advice should always be sought directly from your own General Practitioner.
In addition, we urge all Australians to keep up to date with the Government's Health Advice, located here: https://www.health.gov.au/news/health-alerts
