The Australian government has announced a new plan to deal with the COVID outbreak in Australia.
Key points:The government is trying to make sure the country’s poor have access to safe and affordable healthcareThe government wants to tackle the problem by introducing universal health coverage for the poorThe plan aims to ease access to healthcareThe plan is expected to cost about $10 billionIt’s an idea that’s been a dream for many people in Australia, but only recently has it come to fruition.
Last year, the Government of Australia announced a $10.5 billion plan to provide universal healthcare to Australia’s poorest citizens.
The plan, which was due to be announced in March, was put on hold in the face of pressure from the Opposition.
The Government had originally announced that the money would be used to provide free access to a range of public healthcare services, including free dental and vision tests, and to provide access to free drugs and health education.
But in February the plan was scrapped, leaving the Government with only a $4 billion commitment for the next financial year.
It was a huge blow to the Prime Minister, who was facing a very public backlash, and was under pressure to make good on the promise to tackle COVID in Australia by tackling the problem on a global scale.

Under the plan, universal healthcare is a major priority for the government, with an additional $4.4 billion budgeted for a national health strategy, with another $2 billion to help build a national emergency centre, and a further $4 million to help local health workers cope with COVID cases.
The budget will also allocate $4billion to support public housing.
However, some people in the community have expressed concerns that the plan is not working.
Dr Robert Dickson, a lecturer in public health at Curtin University, said the plan’s aim was to make it as easy as possible for people to access the most basic healthcare services.
“This is the first time I’ve heard of a universal health plan in the UK,” Dr Dickson said.
“It is a very complex plan.
The details are not clear, it’s very difficult to understand and the plan does not seem to be delivering on the promises of universal health care.”
If you go and visit the National Hospital in Melbourne, you will not find a single person on the street with COVS.
“The only way to get COV-19 is if you have to be in hospitals, if you need a blood test.”
In a country like Australia where we have so many people without health insurance, that is a real concern for people in that country.
“Dr Dickson has also been concerned that the Government has not been adequately communicating with local communities about how the plan would be implemented.”
What we have seen is that they’ve been a bit quiet about the details, the funding and the plans,” Dr. Dickson told news.com.au.”
We have also heard that the public is not aware of the measures the Government is making to ensure people can access the health system.
“There are lots of different ways to get access to the system and that is what we want to see.”
Dr. Dinson is not alone.
The plan has been met with criticism from local people and advocates, who say it is not enough.
“I think we are seeing a lack of communication,” Dr Daniella Williams, a community health worker with the Royal Free Hospital, told newscom.org.au.
“I’ve been working for almost 30 years and I haven’t heard of any government ever actually saying, ‘here are all the resources we have and how we’re going to pay for it’.”
Dr Williams said that while the plan has “been good for a while” with funding allocated, it was time for the Government to do more.
“How do you really get a good start in tackling the crisis?”
Dr Williams asked.
“One of the things we are really concerned about is that the funding has not kept pace with the number of people who are being admitted to hospitals.”
People are being treated in the same hospital as others who have contracted the virus, so there’s a real risk that those patients are going to die of COVID.”‘
No-one has seen a case of COV yet’Dr Williams also said that the health minister has not seen a single case of the virus in the country, and that the government was “missing the boat” in this area.”

And when you have a plan, it is very important to understand what the plan actually means and to ensure that you are getting the resources you need.”‘
