Monash Medical Centre also treated the first hospitalised case of the virus in late February.

The hospital established a new unit in April specifically to treat coronavirus patients, as the number of people requiring treatment began to rise.

The new unit was built from components used at the Melbourne Grand Prix and the Melbourne Cup.

As US coronavirus cases, deaths, and hospitalizations set new records almost daily, experts are nervously eyeing Americans' behaviour during Thanksgiving.
