The spike comes after the number of people to receive a PCR test increased from 7141 to 11,184 over the previous 24 hours – a 56.6 per cent increase in testing.

The number of people hospitalised with the virus has dipped from 254 to 247, with 10 people in intensive care.

The three people reported to have died on Wednesday include a woman in her 50s, a woman in her 80s and a woman in her 90s.

There are 26,486 active cases across South Australia.

The 4856 cases recorded on Wednesday is the highest since 4986 infections were recorded on April 13.

Yesterday’s figures were well above South Australia’s seven-day average of 3678 new cases a day.
