Transport in Australia is now at the epicenter of a national transport crisis, with a surge in cases of severe dehydration affecting more than 20,000 people a day.
The government has released a public health alert for the entire country which warns that Australians are experiencing a new coronavirus outbreak, with cases of the coronaviruses COVID-19 and DENV-19 increasing at an alarming rate.
More than 60 per cent of those who have tested positive have been drinking water contaminated with COVID and are now being treated at home.
The alert comes as coronaviral symptoms of acute dehydration have also become more widespread.
Health experts are warning that Australia could see the largest coronavadosis pandemic in its history as more than 30 per cent or more of the population becomes ill with the illness.
It is estimated that up to 80 per cent will need hospital treatment, with the majority requiring intravenous fluids.
In the past few days, more than 200 people have been diagnosed with COVI-19 in the country.
The first case was diagnosed in Melbourne’s north-west.
The coronavaccine crisis has already prompted a number of deaths.
More than 700 people died in Australia during the pandemic, including more than 1,500 in Victoria.
The Australian Government is calling for an immediate and strong national response to the coronaparvirus outbreak.
“The coronapirus outbreak in Australia has reached unprecedented proportions and we need to address this crisis quickly, to protect Australians and the wider public,” Health Minister Greg Hunt said.
In a statement on Wednesday, Health Minister Ian Macdonald said that the Government is taking a “stronger” approach to the outbreak and is urging people to stay hydrated and get vaccinated.
“We are not prepared to allow coronavac to overwhelm the system, so we are working with local authorities to establish a national coronaviolistically-driven vaccination program that will help ensure the safety and wellbeing of Australians,” Mr Macdonald added.
Australia’s public health authorities have launched a helpline that can be used to talk to anyone experiencing dehydration.
It has been established to provide advice on how to avoid getting sick from the coronovirus outbreak and to get the most up-to-date information.
Dr David Hodge, a specialist in coronaviroids at the University of Adelaide, said that while it was difficult to predict what type of symptoms may be coming from the virus, dehydration could be a key factor.
“It is not known what the virus does to the brain and what its impact will be, but dehydration can result in the onset of severe neurological symptoms, such as seizures and confusion,” Dr Hodge said.
“If you’re not getting enough fluids, you can also develop dehydration-induced pneumonia.”
Dr Hodge added that the symptoms could be similar to the symptoms seen in people who are sick with other chronic illnesses, such over-the-counter cough medicines.
“There is a possibility that dehydration is a consequence of COVID, but I wouldn’t rule that out.
There is also a possibility it’s the result of a different virus, and that’s why the coronavalve pandemic is such a significant threat,” he said.
