From today, a mass text message campaign will launch with every Australian mobile phone receiving an alert from the Australian Government. The prompt aims to equip Australians with the steps they can take to protect themselves, their families and the whole community from the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
The text message will read:
Coronavirus Aus Gov msg: To stop the spread, stay 1.5m from others, follow rules on social gatherings, wash hands, stay home if sick. aus.gov.au
