The Australian Medical Association has argued for years that the nation needs a national centre for disease control, and the coronavirus outbreak has led it to repeat its call. AMA president Tony Bartone says having a CDC offers a number of benefits, while he claims that all other OECD member nations have a national CDC. The coronavirus has resulted in at least 80 deaths and infected 2,744 people in China, while it has spread to a number of other countries. The World Health Organization has stated that it is too soon to declare the coronavirus a global health emergency.
