An IT glitch has been blamed for widespread delays in getting coronavirus test results back to South Australians.

Health Minister Stephen Wade told the ABC that the problem had been occurring for people who had been tested for the virus a second or subsequent time.

He went on to say that the glitch had since been solved.

According to SA Health, those getting tested should receive their results within two days of their test.

Testing for the virus has increased across the board in South Australia following the opening of a new drive-through clinic in Victoria Park.

SA Health have now waived requirements of a GP referral for those getting tested at The Repat in Daw Park.

Over 7,000 people are now being tested for the virus across the state each day.


The state recorded another day of zero new active cases, with eight cases currently active across the state.
