Testing clinic wait times
Testing clinic wait times have blown out across Perth’s northern suburbs after the new COVID cases emerged.
A new clinic in Mindarie has been set up to cope with demand, with people lining up to get tested before construction had even finished.
Cars were bumper to bumper at the clinic on Monday, with the queue stretching for more than a kilometre.
Many had come from the Joondalup clinic where some had been in line since 4.30am – three hours before the clinic even opened.
On Sunday night people had to be turned away from that clinic after wait times blew out to nine hours.
Mindarie is just one of four new testing locations across Perth, along with Wangara, Hocking and Duncraig.
There were 8398 COVID tests conducted in WA on Sunday.
The state government says while the numbers are encouraging, it’s not enough, urging more people to get tested.
