Covid Australia: New South Wales records 78,000 positive rapid test results

New South Wales records 78,000 positive rapid test results – just hours after Dom Perrottet introduced new reporting system

NSW has recorded 78,000 positive Covid-19 rapid test results, less than 24 hours after the new reporting system went live.

It comes after NSW residents were told they must upload their positive Covid test results using the Service NSW app.

Huge fines of $1,000 were brought in on Wednesday morning for those who don’t report positive RAT results – despite Premier Dominic Perrottet admitting it will be difficult to enforce.  


 Those who test positive on a rapid antigen test must report their results via the Service NSW app

Fines of $1,000 will apply to those who don’t with penalties coming into force from January 19

Positive results from January 1 can be reported with anyone testing positive as of Wednesday January 12 required to report it on the app

Positive results must be lodged within 24 hours of the test

People who don’t have the app can lodge their results through the Service NSW website

Interstate travellers can log on as a guest

Those who register their positive result will receive a notification from NSW Health when their seven-day isolation is up

How to do it :

NSW residents can open the Service NSW app and click on Covid-19 Resources

They then select ‘Register a positive test result’

They will be taken to another site where they fill in their personal details and log their results


More to come.
