Posted September 30, 2018 09:32:59The Valley Health Agency (VHA) has announced it will offer a $5,000 reward for information that leads to identifying the people responsible for a coronavision outbreak.VHA Commissioner John Debelle said the reward would help local authorities investigate who may have been responsible for bringing the virus into the Valley and what steps were taken to contain the spread.
“The public is very interested in who was responsible for this, and we need the information to assist in that process,” he said.
“We’re not just trying to find out who did this, we want to know how and why they did this.”VHA Director of Health, Professor Brian Gorman, said he was delighted the public had joined the campaign.
“This is a significant step in the public engagement of the virus and in the wider response to the coronovirus,” Professor Gorman said.
“I think we’ve really got to make sure that we do everything we can to educate the community and that we make sure we have the resources to address the root causes of the outbreak.”
Mr Gorman has been leading a campaign to identify those responsible for spreading the coronivirus, and said there had been significant improvement in the last year.
“A lot of the things we’ve done have been really significant improvements,” he told the ABC.
“What we’ve been able to achieve is the people we’ve identified have been isolated and removed from the community.”VHS and VHWA have both launched an interactive campaign to encourage people to share information about the virus.
“It’s a real challenge for the Valley Health authorities,” Mr Gorman added.
“They’re really working to get the information out to the community.
They’re also trying to get some of the information about it out into the community, so that they can use that information to improve the response to this outbreak.”
