Another COVID-19 wave is on its way to Australia, with the nation’s peak medical body urging federal and state governments to rethink winding back restrictions.
Doctors alarmed over easing COVID-19 rules
Australia’s peak medical body has warned it’s too early to scrap COVID-19 isolation requirements, with the nation likely to be hit by another wave of infections.
National cabinet has agreed to dump the five-day isolation period for positive cases, with the changes to take effect on October 14.
Australian Medical Association president Steve Robson told AAP it was too early to ease the protections.
“All the signs are that we’re looking at another wave of COVID,” he said.
