Hospital Crisis in Victoria as Lockdown ends.

Hospital operations are being cancelled in Victoria as people sick with COVID-19 continue to take up beds across the state’s overwhelmed hospital system.

Victoria ends its lockdown on Thursday 21st October at 11.59pm.

Mr Andrews said the state would try and get through the lengthy backlog of cancelled elective surgeries as quickly as possible.
“The sickest have got to be treated quickest,” he said.
“But we will get to catch up, we will deal with that backlog just as fast as we possibly can.”
Some of the operations being cancelled are classed as “category one”, meaning they have been deemed urgent and pose a risk to the individual if the procedure is unable to go ahead.
These include procedures like the removal of cancerous breast lumps and skin lesions.
