False Covid-19 infections hit Canberra

Ten of the eleven people who were confirmed as COVID-19 positive in ACT have today tested negative to Coronavirus.

The 11 were notified of their positive COVID-19 test result yesterday, but ACT Health said 10 of them have now tested negative.

The initial tests were conducted and issued by a private pathology provider but the ACT Health ordered an urgent retesting of the individuals. 

The 11th person is in isolation in NSW and waiting for results of the new test.

“At this time, there are no positive cases of COVID-19 in the ACT and no exposure sites,” said an ACT Health spokesperson.

“Should there be a positive case in the ACT, we will provide information and advice to the community as quickly as possible.

“Work is ongoing with the pathology provider to determine the reasons for the indeterminate results that were reported as positive.”

The ACT’s daily COVID-19 update was issued just before 1pm today, recording no new cases of the virus from more than 1,100 test results in the past 24 hours.
