Description: 

This table shows the total number of tests conducted in Australia and in each state and territory, since 22 January 2020. This number is not reflective of the number of people that have been tested, but the total number of tests completed, as individuals can be tested multiple times.

The testing positivity rate is also displayed. This figure represents the percent of all tests that have returned a positive result for COVID-19.

To date, over 2 million tests have been conducted nationally. Of those tests conducted, less than 1% have been positive.
