This resource was developed arising from yesterday’s webinar with Dr Coatsworth, hosted by RACS.

In the webinar, Dr Bridget Clancy identified an opportunity to help rural surgeons understand what their local prevalence is, by linking to resources with this information to add to the COVID-19 resources hub at RACS.

Australian state and territory health jurisdictions provide maps and charts of confirmed cases by locality classifications, whereas others provide tabulated data.

Summarised below is a list of resources which will be useful for surgeons to gauge their local regional prevalence of positive cases.
