Health Minister Brad Hazzard has urged NSW residents to be honest health officials to ensure they can track the chain of transmission.
‘One of the ongoing problems that public health has had in NSW and also in Victoria is that people are not necessarily telling us the whole truth and nothing but the truth,’ Mr Hazzard said.
‘Whether it’s deliberate, whether its overlooked, you need to make sure it’s neither of those things.
‘Public health officials need to be able to track the chains of transmission and that’s impossible if people don’t give us the full picture of where they’ve been.’
