AMA President Dr Omar Khorshid says we can be “reasonably confident” of hospitals having enough ICU beds and staff for those who need it.

“But as we get more and more into the pandemic, as the numbers go up and up, the level of training of those staff will decrease, the staff will be more and more tired and exhausted,” Dr Khorshid told Sky News Australia.

“I think we can be confident that the quality of care that you can expect to receive will be under pressure.

“That’s why it’s critical that New South Wales doesn’t take steps to open up right at the time when ICU admissions and hospital admissions are at their peak if that is in October.”
