Prime Minister Stephen Marshall said Saturday’s numbers include 3,175 confirmed infections with PCR tests and 1,242 from state-issued rapid antigen tests.

He described the numbers as a “significant drop” from the 5,679 infections recorded on Friday, the first day rapid antigen tests were included in the daily totals and come after delays in processing PCR tests after the hot weather on Wednesday and Thursday.
