A million masks available for GPs who need them, claims Greg Hunt

He says GPs 'may not have realised' that primary health networks have supplies

Masks for GPs conducting coronavirus testing are not in short supply, although some doctors “may not have realised” stocks are available through PHNs, Minister for Health Greg Hunt says.

Almost 90% of GPs responding to an Australian Doctor survey last week reported they lacked appropriate PPE to safely take swabs from patients suspected to have the virus.
