How registering your Myki could help curtail COVID-19 outbreaks

Nick Foa from the Department of Transport told Neil Mitchell it was critical in helping the response.
“It gives us information we can pass straight on to contact tracers if a public transport site has become an exposure site,” he said.

“That’s increased since January last year, but we’d really like to get that number higher,” Mr Foa said.
