70% of doctors in one state don't have enough PPE

A survey of 600 doctors in Queensland reveals half are buying their own equipment

An AMA Queensland survey of more than 600 doctors on the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic found that 70% did not have enough PPE. 


More than 50% of the doctors were buying their own equipment, while almost 85% said they were not confident they would have enough in the near future. 

Last week, AMAQ president Dr Dilip Dhupelia called for the State Government to come clean with health workers, following concerning comments left on the survey.
