Hunter New England Health says residents shouldn’t discount the threat Sydney’s cluster poses.
It’s not yet clear just how far the outbreak has spread.
The health district is now involved in Sydney’s mammoth contact-tracing mission.
“We really do believe that the contact of some of those cases have actually been dispersed quite widely, particularly in Sydney, and so we all have to be on the alert now.” – Dr. David Durrheim, HNEH.
