The healthcare sector is, without a doubt, one of the most important sectors in any state. With the onset of the pandemic, the importance of a functional healthcare system has only multiplied. The response of the Australian government, so far, has been exceptional in curtailing the spread of the coronavirus, despite a global struggle. The Australian government has been able to respond to the pandemic in an exceptional manner largely because of a strong healthcare sector. This has been made possible because of the assistance that the government has continued to provide the healthcare sector even before the pandemic. The government has extended support in the past in the form of funding programs, grants, awards, incentives, and subsidies.
