The Australian Defence Force will be deploying more units throughout the country in order to help combat the coronavirus. A new mission, Operation COVID-19 ASSIST, will have hundreds of solders deploy to all states and territories. These troops will help enforce quarantine regulations and business closures. Senator Reynolds commented that the operation was created to “protect Australians and support state and territory capacity in a time of crisis”. Authorities also have the ability to make requests for more ADF troops, and they will take on numerous roles in order to best serve the country and the citizens.
