Healthcare professionals are now extremely confident in Australia’s ability to handle coronavirus – a rapid turnaround in just one month.

More than 90 per cent of healthcare workers surveyed in April believed Australia is up for the fight, up from just 40 per cent in March.

Half of surgeons said they had been left with no patients to treat, while just 43 per cent of respondents to the TKW poll were worried about a second wave of infections.
