COVID-19: Deputy CMO gives national update | SBS News
The Deputy Chief Medical Ofifcer, Professor Paul Kelly, says its “absolutely crucial” for workers to stay at home if they have symptoms that may be from coronavirus, following a small rise in cases from outbreaks at workplaces.
He was speaking at a press conference in Canberra after 26 new cases were reported in Australia – most from outbreaks at a residential aged care home in Sydney and a meatworks in western Melbourne.
Mr Kelly also called on Australians to join the five million users of the government’s COVIDSafe app, and said more than 90% of smartphone users in Australia would be able to install the app on their devices.
