‘Crazy’ queues at COVID-19 testing clinics as number of exposure sites balloons
With a slew of new COVID-19 exposure sites identified overnight, wait times at Melbourne’s COVID-19 testing sites have blown out.
Many sites have been overwhelmed by demand and forced to close temporarily, while wait times at some other sites are more than three hours.
A total of 79 exposure sites have now been identified.
Today reporter at the Albert Park testing site, Izabella Staskowski, says the queue is “crazy”.
“There are hundreds,” she said.
“We are hearing reports that the showgrounds, the drive-through one, is just inundated as well.”
