Deputy chief medical officer Paul Kelly said Australia had tested more people per capita than “virtually anywhere else in the world” – with 178,000 completed so far.

He said that “about 10,000 a day is now our capacity” and that the “breadth” of the tests has been expanded to include more people in broader categories at higher volume.

Professor Paul Kelly said the positive results of 1.5% of the tests carried out in Australia “convinced him” that the health services were testing in large numbers and finding the people to be searched.

He said rapid tests will arrive in Australia, some of which have already arrived, but must undergo rigorous safety and efficacy tests before they can be used.
