Urgent ICU investment needed ahead of peak – Yahoo News Australia

Academic modelling suggests efforts to slow the spread of the coronavirus in NSW could delay the peak period of infection until October but there would still be a massive shortage of ICU beds without "urgent investment". If restrictions on movement reduce the reproduction rate to 1.6 - meaning each individual with the COVID-19 infects 1.6 others - the state's ICU capacity could still be overwhelmed later this year, an article published in the Medical Journal of Australia says. "Under the scenario of increased social isolation, the peak infection will shift to early October and peak ICU utilisation will shift to mid-November and would be around one-third the size of the business-as-usual peak," the authors wrote in an article published on Monday evening.
