In South Australia, four new cases of coronavirus recorded

In South Australia, four new cases of coronavirus have been recorded. Now, all of them are in hotel quarantine. There are three women in their 20s and a man in his 30s. All of them were tested positive for COVID-19 on their day one tests after they came back from their overseas tour.

In South Australia, the new cases bring the total number of recorded to 583 since the start of COVID.

Today, Victoria recorded three new locally acquired cases. All of them connected to a cluster at a Thai restaurant. This in turn traces back to the outbreak in New South Wales.

To quote SA Health which has warned that people travelling in or out of Victoria “should monitor the Victorian DHHS (Department of Health and Human Services) website for the latest updates and get tested immediately if they develop any symptoms, no matter how mild.”

SA Premier Steven Marshall explained that he did not predict any changes to the border arrangements with Victoria “at this stage”.

“The reality is the new cases in Victoria today, I am informed, are linked to previous infections and so not nearly as worrying as a new infection bubbling up,” he said.

“This is a very fluid situation. We did have for a very short period of time pretty much all borders opened up. That of course was brought to a halt by what occurred with the cluster in NSW.”

Majority of travel from New South Wales is restricted, besides people living within 100 kilometres of the border.

Today, NSW recorded no new locally-acquired cases. Mr Marshall said that it’s too early to say when SA would consider relaxing the hard border.
“We don’t lift that border immediately. We want to get 14 days of no new cases, that’s the benchmark.”

Mr. Marshall today introduced the second round of the “Great State” tourism vouchers. This time, it’s also open to interstate visitors. The first round in October had a quick uptake but not everyone who took up a voucher used it.
