AMA urges people to continue doctor visits

On the 6th of April 2020, the Australian Medical Association (AMA) president Dr Tony Bartone urged patients to continue to see their doctors for ongoing health care and maintenance.

“The COVID-19 fear is understandable, but for some people it could mean that a medical condition like cancer or heart disease will go undetected” said Dr Bartone.

“The consequences of not seeing your doctor for usual care could be life-threatening for many patients. The failure to be able to monitor patients with existing conditions could lead to their conditions getting much worse.”
