Default Victoria to recruit overseas healthcare workers to help with COVID-19 outbreak

I get the feeling that the mismanagement of the covid outbreaks in Victoria is about to cause a massive strain on the state's health care system:
Victoria will recruit 1,000 overseas healthcare workers to support its healthcare system, as the state records 1,466 new locally acquired COVID-19 cases and eight more deaths.

The total number of active cases sits at 19,627, with 675 people hospitalised.

Some 144 patients are in intensive care, and 100 are receiving ventilation.....

With hospitalisations expected to rise in the coming weeks, Health Minister Martin Foley foreshadowed the cancellations of elective surgery in some areas across the state.

“We will be shifting capacity from the state sector to the private sector and with that … we will be progressively seeking to switch off elements of non-urgent care,” Mr Foley said.

.
1,000 overseas workers is A LOT. I wonder where they'll be recruited from. Would hate to be in the countries that are about to hemorrhage their doctors and nurses.

What next, fruit pickers and truck drivers?
