My question is to the Prime Minister. In the six weeks between now and when parliament is due to meet next, the number of COVID patients in New South Wales intensive care units is expected to peak. Today, the Australian Medical Association warned that Australia's hospital system is unprepared for a sharp increase in critically ill patients. What extra resources will the Prime Minister give the nation's health system so it can cope?
