chaos as test queue times hit 12 hours

Sumary of Chaos as test queue times hit 12 hours:

  • Residents in one Australian state are facing brutal 12-hour queues to be tested for Covid-19, forcing some to sleep in their cars.
  • Footage from a number of locations across metropolitan Adelaide have shown queuing vehicles stretching kilometres from the testing locations as the number of exposure sites continues to grow.
  • After Eva Smyth received a message from SA Health to be tested late on Tuesday night, she drove the Victoria Park testing site at 4.30am and found a line-up of cars snaked for kilometres.
  • The former nurse said she managed to get her Covid-19 test through a general practitioner in Port Adelaide and had booked to go back for her day five and 13 test to avoid the “unreasonable and unexpected” queues.
  • The premier said SA Police were now looking at adding live updates online for wait times.
  • Yesterday, he said SA Pathology quickly “flexed” their staff on the front line and in the laboratory, which can now process 18,000 samples a day, and said additional testing places will be stood up across the state.
