Media Stable Managing Director Nic Hayes says Victoria’s health system is an “absolute disaster zone” as Australian Defence Force personnel are called in to drive ambulances.
The Age is reporting the ADF have been called in to help prevent Victoria’s health system from being overwhelmed by a surge in COVID-19 cases.
Mr Hayes pointed out Western Australia and Queensland’s health systems are also struggling despite the fact they are not being swamped with high COVID numbers.
“But ambulances in Victoria, I swear, if you’re bringing in the ADF to do anything that is a complete and utter tipping point,” he said.
“We shouldn’t be there, we should have a better health system, and particularly for Victorians they should be asking that of their Premier – why don’t we have that?”
