South Australia is doing the right thing by going and getting tested. But with such a big influx of people, the testing sites are overwhelmed with demand.

The Victoria Park / Pakapakanthi COVID-19 testing site has a line going back for 5km, with one person having waited 10 hours to get her covid-test!

Erin & Soda got onto Dr Emily Kirkpatrick to discuss testing sites and what SA Health are doing to make the process quicker. She confirmed that a new site will be opening in the Modbury region and multiple testing sites popping up across South Australia to keep up with demand.

They will also be extending hours at sites, so check in on their Facebook and Twitter where they will be updating throughout the day.
