COVID-19 testing increase in Cairns


Today I spoke to Don Mackie, Executive Director Medical Services Cairns and Hinterland, about the increase in COVID-19 testing in the Cairns region. Listen below to our discussion. 

Since the Queensland border reopened on the 10th of July COVID-19 testing has been ramped up to make sure our region stays safe. A pop-up fever clinic has been stepped up on the Esplanade and more pop-up fever clinics are expected to be set up in the region to keep up with the demand. An increase in visitor numbers is wonderful news for the tourism industry but we must remember to stay vigilant and keep practicing social distancing
