The Australian government is expected to launch a stimulus package to help tackle the impact of the coronavirus worth more than A$15bn (£7.8bn).
The package is expected to be unveiled by prime minister Scott Morrison on Thursday, and financing will be spread out until at least March 2021, said the ABC news site.
Some of the money will go towards protecting the jobs of around 120,000 apprentices across the country. The government is also expected to announce temporary tax relief for businesses.
Earlier today, the BBC reported that the Australian government would spend A$2.4 billion on healthcare costs associated with the disease.
