According to the report, a statement showed that it is currently considered “human error.”

 

The report specifically talked about one of the affected patients, saying that he received a false “negative” result on Christmas Day, but he said he was uncomfortable and believed that “the COVID-19 test (result) must be wrong”, but he Of doctors make them believe the test results, not their own feelings.

At present, the situation of the COVID-19 epidemic in Australia is severe, and the number of new confirmed cases in a single day in many states has also set new highs many times, including NSW.

According to reports, on December 26, local time, the Department of Health of New South Wales, Australia, reported that in the past 24 hours, there were 6,394 newly confirmed cases of COVID-19 pneumonia in the state.

This is the day when the state has the largest number of confirmed cases in a single day since the emergence of the COVID-19 epidemic, and many of the confirmed cases were infected with the Omicron strain.

 

In addition, the increasingly serious epidemic has also affected the travel of Australians during the Christmas period.

It is reported that a spokesperson for Sydney Airport in Australia previously stated that due to the huge pressure on airline staff due to the COVID-19 epidemic prevention requirements, more than 80 domestic flights of all Australian airlines were forced to cancel on Christmas Eve.
