Police said he had tested positive to COVID-19 but had not been isolating.

NSW Chief Health Officer Kerry Chant at the time issued a public warning statement, saying Mr Karam posed a risk to the health or safety of the public.

“The community is warned to avoid contact with Mr Karam and not approach him,” she said.

Police said they had unsuccessfully attempted to find Mr Karam multiple times since his positive COVID-19 test.

He was placed in isolation at Bankstown police station and charged over the outstanding warrant.

Mr Karam was also charged with 13 offences including not preventing the spread of a category 2-5 medical condition in public, not complying with a COVID-19 noticed direction, two counts of failing to comply with a self-isolation direction and nine counts of not wearing a fitted face covering in an indoor area of common property.
