South Australia reported 1471 new Covid cases on Wednesday, with hospitals cancelling most elective surgery operations.

Premier Steven Marshall revealed he expects cases number to double every three or four days and urged people to work from home until the end of January at least.

‘We are seeing big increases in the number of new infections in a very short period of time,’ he said. ‘We’ve got to slow the spread of Omicron.’

The state has now banned all tourism testing for people wanting a PCR test to travel to Queensland and the premier demanded uniform isolation rules for all states nationwide.

The state carried out 23,734 Covid tests in the last 24 hours but South Australia testing system is buckling under the pressure, bringing in the new restrictions.

‘Yesterday 1750 of our PCR tests were dedicated to a pre-departure test for Queensland so we will not be doing any pre-departure tests for any state going forward,’ he said.

‘We just simply need to dedicate all of the testing capability that we have to those people that have symptoms, and those people that are close contacts.’
