South Australian Premier Steven Marshall and SA Chief Medical Officer Nicola Spurrier have provided an update on the state’s coronavirus situation.

Today marks the fifth day of low case increase in South Australia, with one new case marked, a person in their twenties.

15 people remain in hospital, with six in the ICU.

No new cases have been traced from the Adelaide Airport baggage handler cluster.

A 76-year-old man from regional South Australia has become the third person to pass away from COVID-19 in the state, with the Premier stressing the importance of respecting the family’s privacy.

Police Commissioner Grant Stevens stated SAPOL will be roaming holiday spots, and restricting travel at borders. He reiterated the importance of remaining at home this Easter, and confirmed the Easter Bunny will indeed be an exception to the rules.

The Premier also spoke of this morning’s announcement regarding the one-off, $10,000 emergency cash grants for South Australian small businesses and not-for-profits. Businesses that have suffered a significant loss of income or been forced to close due to coronavirus-related restrictions will be eligible.

More to come.
