AMC MCQ Recalls MAY 2022

Share this:

Australia has fared better than many countries throughout much of the pandemic, but despite high vaccination rates and the availability of antiviral treatments, people are still dying every day and case numbers are rising.

Vaccination means few people are becoming significantly unwell, but the virus can still take a toll, and ongoing outbreaks mean health and other essential services, and businesses are struggling to find staff. As for current (time of writing this article), Australia medical advice does not currently support a fourth Covid-19 vaccine for the general population. Let’s pray and hope that Australia can overcome Covid-19 within the soonest possible timeframe!

On the side note, a huge thank you to those who had contributed in providing us with these recalls. Now let us do our part by solving these for you. You may get them from here.
