Dr Tony Bartone - Sunrise - coronavirus, influenza, elective surgery
SAMANTHA ARMYTAGE: Elective surgery and IVF could resume within days with the National Cabinet expected to discuss lifting the ban when it meets tomorrow. It comes after Australia received 58 million face masks to protect health workers from COVID-19 and the flu with a further $100 million set to arrive before the end of May.
Meanwhile, flu vaccine manufacturing is being ramped up with an extra three million flu shots secured. The additional supplies mean more than 16 million people will be able to get vaccinated this season and there will be a rush.
