The bushfires have hit hard in NSW, with many families having to abandon their homes and businesses in the middle of the night to stay safe and secure.
In some parts of the state the air quality has worsened, with the state’s chief health officer warning that the risk of respiratory illnesses was increasing.
Numerous businesses have been shut down, including some petrol stations, grocery stores, bakeries, and cafes.
A few petrol stations and gas stations have been reopened after being closed due to the bushfire, with some petrol station owners saying they were not prepared for the massive amount of damage.
New South Wales Police Chief Inspector Andrew Colvin said the bush fire has caused some significant disruption, with a number of businesses and businesses closed.
“I can say that our priority now is to ensure that as many businesses as possible continue to operate,” he said.
It has been described as the worst bushfire on record.
The state’s Chief Health Officer Dr David Smith said the health risks to the public are significant, particularly for children.
Dr Smith said: “We are now in the midst of an unprecedented outbreak of coronavirus, and as we know, there are many families that have already lost their homes, have lost their businesses, and many more who will soon be without a home.
For many people, this will have been a life-changing event.”
But for the other 95 per cent of the population who will experience no immediate threat, this is a devastating, devastating event.””
For the vast majority of the public, this may have been the worst they’ve ever experienced.
“Dr Colvin added: “At the moment, the public health emergency is in the most severe phase and we expect the number of cases to increase.
But it is not over yet.
“In a bid to combat the coronavirence, the NSW government has announced a $1.5 million public awareness campaign to encourage people to stay at home and take precautions.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian said: “We are doing all we can to protect the people who live in the affected areas and the health of the people in those areas.”
Mr Colvin acknowledged that the bush fires were a “very real threat” to the state, but said there were still a number ways to help.
He said it was important to stay connected to emergency services, especially if you have a car, or even just a mobile phone.
Residents were being urged to contact the Emergency Service NSW (ESNS) on 1800 999 or contact their local police station to speak to an officer.
