A confronting video has revealed the large amount of Chemist Warehouse stores listed as Covid-19 exposure sites in Sydney. 

TikTok user 'silencebrand' shared a video on Thursday showing himself scrolling through an apparent list of the discount pharmacy chain's store locations. 

After scrolling through for a while, he 'realises' he is on the NSW Covid exposure site list, showing it to the camera.  

There are 12 Chemist Warehouse stores, mainly based in Sydney's west and south-west, that are currently listed by NSW Health as Covid exposure sites.  

The video has been viewed nearly 43,000 times and has received hundreds of comments, many from employees of the store who are worried for the health and safety of themselves and their families.

'I work at CWH. People aren't getting tested, instead they come into store when sick. I'm worried I'll get it and bring it home to my family,' commented one worker. 

Another viewer commented on the layout of the store and how difficult it is to comply with social distancing guidelines.

'The aisles are so thin I get claustrophobic. Impossible to social distance,' they wrote.  

'Not a great advertisement for Chemist Warehouse,' remarked another.  

Others said it was concerning how many people infected with Covid were visiting the discount chemist for medication instead of getting tested and isolating.

'They all realise they are sick, go get medication, and still get tested for Covid a week later,' wrote one man. 

Another man said he spotted three people buying cold and flu tablets in the short time he visited the store. 

A comprehensive list of all the exposure sites can be found on the NSW Health website. 

Daily Mail Australia has reached out to Chemist Warehouse for a comment.
