One of Australia’s most prominent medical voices admits the COVID-19 pandemic has been worse than he expected.

He covered a range of coronavirus-related issues.

Professor Doherty admitted the constant mutations and variants of the virus had made it “more infectious and more lethal” than anticipated.

“The pandemic is worse than I expected,” he said.

Professor Doherty said it would continue to impact lives for several more years.
