The AMA has released a communique from its most recent Federal Council meeting, held on 26 September, which was dominated by discussion of the global pandemic. 

“We have seen different strategies adopted by different States and Territories, with differing results,” AMA President, Dr Omar Khorshid, said. 

“What we need to see now is national leadership, that ensures that all Australians understand the challenges that we are facing as a nation, and one single strategy that will lead us all out of this pandemic. 

The communique calls on National Cabinet to review the May 2020 COVID-19 National Roadmap, with the AMA offering up a range of strategies to both protect health as well as support sustainable economic recovery. The AMA Federal Council Communique is available here
