Pest control workers in Sydney’s CBD have been urged to consider moving to a new workplace, with the city seeing an average of three outbreaks each day.
The latest outbreak has claimed more than 150 lives, and the city is struggling to contain the spread of the virus, which is causing a rise in coronavirus infections.
Cities in NSW, Victoria and Queensland have been hit particularly hard, with an average increase in infections of more than 25 per cent over the past two weeks.
However, the numbers are on the rise in the Sydney CBD, where an average daily increase in the number of people infected with the virus has more than doubled to over 100.
“We’re seeing a spike in people coming in with respiratory illnesses, coughs, congestion, cough,” Ms Kelly said.
We’re just really struggling to deal with it and it’s a very complex situation for the community.
She said the coronaviruses are also spreading to other parts of Australia, with people in Victoria, NSW and Queensland being the most affected.
Ms Kelly said the city needed to find a way to make the city a more attractive place for people to come to work, but there are also safety issues.
There are also concerns that the virus could have a knock-on effect in other areas of the country, particularly the south-east, which has the highest rate of infections.
“What we need to be concerned about is not just a coronaviral pandemic but also an influenza pandemic,” Ms Davis said.
“We are very vulnerable here.
We have very little information on the virus at the moment.
If you’re not going to be able to get vaccinated, what you need to do is make sure you’re getting enough vaccines.”
