From Sunday Morning, 7:10 am on 26 July 2020

Hospitals in Melbourne have begun to draw on an army of reserve doctors and nurses as Victoria's second wave of coronavirus forces hundreds of healthcare professionals into isolation. Australian correspondent Rebekah Holt joins the show from Melbourne off the back of a week in which Victoria recorded its most deadly day in the Covid-19 pandemic and the overall case load for the state edged closer to the 8000 mark.

People wearing face masks are seen at the entrance of the Menarock Life aged care facility, where a cluster of infections has been reported.  There are Covid-19 cases linked to 40 aged care facilities in Victoria.
