Coronavirus Australia latest updates: Victoria expands testing as Melbourne at risk of second lockdown – live news – The Guardian

We know there have actually been delays and reports of centers running out of tests in Victoria, however the federal government is still promoting as lots of people to be tested as possible.
Greg Hunt has actually launched this statement:
Almost 90 clinics have now been established across Victoria to check individuals with cold and flu signs for Pneumonia, influenza and covid-19.
The Australian Government is motivating all Victorians with such symptoms, particularly those residing in among the 6 determined coronavirus hotspots, to be tested at a GP-led Respiratory Clinic (GPRC) or Victorian Government-run fever clinic.
The 27 GPRCs in Victoria, together with 60 fever centers run by Department of Health and Human Services Victoria, are doing a terrific job in reducing the spread of coronavirus throughout the state, helping to lower pressure on emergency situation departments and making it faster and easier for all Victorians to access totally free coronavirus testing.
As at 23 June 2020, GPRCs had actually serviced Victorians from 548 postcodes, covering 97.7 percent of the state geographically. They have actually assessed more than 43,000 individuals, and performed roughly 37,600 tests for coronavirus. GPRCs have performed 24,576 tests in Victorian coronavirus hotspots alone (65 percent of all tests conducted in Victoria).
If we are experiencing any signs, it is more important than ever for us all to work together to get and slow the spread evaluated. This is particularly the case for homeowners in areas marked as coronavirus hotspots: Hume, Casey, Brimbank, Moreland, Cardinia and Darebin– or anybody who has checked out these locations just recently.
Victorians can access free services at their nearby screening clinic, with extended hours in specific locations, drive-through clinics and walk-through centers making the procedure of getting tested as available as possible.
