The Victorian government has released details of a health care worker wellbeing package to support those who have been working tirelessly during the coronavirus pandemic. Victoria has successfully overcome a second wave of the virus, and has recorded eight days in a row of no community transmission.
But at the peak of the virus, with hundreds of new cases and dozens of deaths a day, health care workers were among those most affected, with many infected and furloughed from work due to exposure.
No surprises that once again no new cases of Covid-19 were reported in Western Australia overnight.
The state’s positive Covid-19 case total stands at 776. WA Health is monitoring 12 active cases. To date 755 confirmed cases have recovered from the virus. Yesterday 818 people presented to WA Covid-19 clinics – 807 were assessed and 804 swabbed.
