Deputy CMO urges Australians to use COVIDSafe app following updates

In other countries, contact tracing apps are mandatory, especially when people leave their home – but then so are face masks. In Australia, authorities continue to ‘urge’ people. Fortunately, it seems the message is getting through slowly. We’re seeing more and more people wearing masks in public, and more clients are wearing masks when they come to see us. Thank you.
Following criticism the COVIDSafe app is a “dud”, Deputy Chief Medical Officer Nick Coatsworth says a number of updates to its algorithm have “undoubtedly” improved its effectiveness.
