The government wants to know if a person has been exposed to the coronavirus
More than 70,000 people have been exposed across Australia, and the Federal Government is now asking if they are being exposed to coronaviruses.
The State Government has been inundated with questions over the coronas outbreak, and has also been inundate with calls from people who have been infected.
Health Minister Sussan Ley said the Government was “seeking to understand the full extent” of exposure, and if there is a risk to their health.
“We have got more than 70 million household members who are currently infected and we are looking at the full scope of this,” she said.
“I think that it is really important for us to get that information to the community.”
If there is any risk, that would be something that we would seek to look at.
“There are a lot of different processes that we need to follow in terms of what we can do in terms the risk assessment, what we do to address that risk, how we handle the exposure in terms, I think, of the people who are now exposed and how that process might be addressed in the future.”
Questions have also been raised about whether people can legally be exposed to a coronaviral strain in Australia.
Ms Ley said she was unaware of any restrictions on exposure.
“It is my understanding that there are no restrictions on access to certain coronaviroscopic medicines or vaccines,” she told reporters.
Ms Ley says the Government will be “very careful about what we call what we are doing” with the coronases. “
The Government will look at this and we will have a look at the matter.”
