The NSW government has sought legal advice about the best way to ensure residents register their positive rapid antigen tests under new measures set to be introduced as it seeks to understand the full scale of the Omicron wave.

Premier Dominic Perrottet foreshadowed the changes to how the state processes rapid tests on Monday as NSW recorded its deadliest day of the pandemic and public hospitals began diverting more patients into the private system.

 

Health Minister Brad Hazzard said the government had made the decision to mandate the reporting of rapid antigen test results at the request of Chief Health Officer Kerry Chant. The state’s health department has sought advice from the Crown Solicitor’s Office over its legal capacity to enforce the mandatory reporting of tests.

“There has been much discussion regarding the possibility of mandatory enforcement and the health lawyers are consulting with Crown Solicitor’s to look at what may be possible,” Mr Hazzard told the Herald.

 

“It comes with the added benefit that it might also open the door to federal financial assistance if you’re off work for the week. The bottom line is it is a must-do, even if there is no fine.

“At the end of the day, it’s an obligation on all of us to make sure that we log in to the Service NSW app, particularly as it will give a clear picture of how the virus is moving through the community.”

compulsory reporting of positive RATs...

NSW has confirmed 25,870 more COVID cases and 11 deaths, as the state government wants to force residents to report positive at-home rapid test results.

The cases reported on Tuesday were detected from just over 71,000 PCR laboratory tests.

But NSW chief health officer Kerry Chant warned on Monday that daily case numbers were “conservative” because rapid test results were yet to be officially included.

 

This week, NSW will move to a dual reporting system for infections that includes positive, self-administered RAT results – reported through the ServiceNSW app – and the normal PCR results.

Health Minister Brad Hazzard told The Sydney Morning Herald on Tuesday the government wants to mandate reporting of positive RAT results.

His department has sought advice from the Crown Solicitor’s Office on how it can be legally enforced.

“It comes with the added benefit that it might also open the door to federal financial assistance if you’re off work for the week. The bottom line is it is a must-do, even if there is no fine,” Mr Hazzard told the SMH.

“At the end of the day, it’s an obligation on all of us to make sure that we log in to the Service NSW app, particularly as it will give a clear picture of how the virus is moving through the community.”

On Monday, NSW has its its deadliest day of the pandemic, with 18 dead. They included a three-year-old boy who had significant underlying health conditions.

Another 11 deaths were reported on Tuesday, as virus-related hospital admissions again climbed, to 2186.

getting sicker...

NSW has sustained its deadliest day of the pandemic as a function for people to register their positive rapid antigen test results went live on the state's COVID-19 app.

There were 21 deaths in the 24 hours to 8pm yesterday, but chief health officer Kerry Chant revealed some of those deaths were "historic" and dated back as far as September.

Dr Chant said authorities had been waiting on the findings of coronial inquests before linking some of the fatalities to the virus.

In total 17 men and four women were confirmed to have died with the virus in the latest reporting period - the youngest person was in their 30s and the eldest was more that 100 years old.

The number of people being treated for the virus in hospital has grown to 2,242 and 175 people are in intensive care.

It is an increase of 56 hospital and five ICU patients respectively on the previous reporting period. There are 54 people on a ventilator.

There were another 34,759 new infections recorded on Tuesday, with 134,411 tests conducted.

Dr Chant said genomic sequencing had revealed 90 per cent of active cases in NSW were the Omicron strain, with 10 per cent being the Delta variant.

Despite health authorities describing Omicron as being more "mild" than previous strains, Dr Chant said 67 per cent of people in ICU had the new variant.

NSW Health said yesterday the dropping number of PCR tests being conducted meant reported cases do not reflect the true number of infections in the community.

Case numbers plummeted from a peak of more than 45,000 on January 7 to just 20,200 in two days after people were urged to use rapid tests instead of battling long queues for lab swabs.

And you shall be fined $1,000 if you don't report your "positive" RAT... Obviously this is designed to prevent people from testing themselves, isn't it, from fear of being found out? Where can we find RATs? Nowhere either!!!
