He marched through the city on Saturday and developed Covid-19 symptoms 24 hours later, sparking fears of a second spike in infections.

Authorities fear the man in his 30s could have passed the disease onto others even if he did wear a mask to the rally.

Speaking to Sydney’s radio 2GB Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton said: 

This realizes our worst fears. Now we could slip back into a second wave like other countries have.

The state of Victoria’s Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton said it was unlikely he caught the bug at the protest as he would not be showing symptoms so soon. 

He added: 

It’s obviously helpful that the individual wore a mask but masks are not 100 percent protection.
