Dr James Giallussi helps convey COVID-19 messages to Sydney’s Greek community


The Central and Eastern Sydney Primary Health Network (CESPHN) have developed a suite of videos from general practitioners (GPs) in the central and eastern Sydney region to convey the COVID-19 message to stay home, get tested and get vaccinated in a number of languages.

Dr James Giallussi, who owns a family medical practice in Rosebery, is doing his part for Sydney’s Greek community by sharing the messages in Greek.

In the video, Dr Giallussi can be heard asking people to only leave their home for four main reasons and to get vaccinated.

“Sydney is on high alert for COVID-19 and the Sydney lockdown has been extended. The only reasons you should leave home include shopping for food, medical care, exercise, or essential work and education,” Dr Giallussi says.

“You can leave home to get a COVID test or get vaccinated. Masks must be worn when indoors, except at home. You should not have visitors to your house. This includes family members outside of your household.

“Everyone in your family should get tested if anyone has COVID-19 or has come into contact with someone with COVID-19.”

Dr Giallussi joins a number of other GPs in the CESPHN region who can be heard speaking in English, Arabic, Korean, German, Tamil, Bengali, Serbian, Bahasa, Mandarin, Afrikaans and Uyghur.
