#LIVE: Press conference from Parliament House, Canberra
A further 1 million tests for #COVID19 have been done in Australia in the past two weeks, bringing our total tests since this global pandemic began to more than 5 million.
Our testing rates continue to be one of the highest in the world and one of the lowest positive return rates, at just 0.4 per cent. The key to staying on top of any outbreaks is testing, tracing and isolating. So if you’re sick and have any symptoms, stay home and get tested.
We all must remain disciplined when it comes to being out and about. Practice good hygiene, keep physical distance, and have the COVIDSafe app on your phone.
A lot of people are doing it really tough right now so please check in on your friends, family and neighbours and continue to look after each other.
Together we will get through this.

“We are on your side. If you have a go in this country you’ll get a go. That’s what fairness in Australia means. My ambition is for an even stronger Australia – to keep our economy strong, to keep Australians safe and to keep Australians together.”
