In a press conference, South Australia Premier Steven Marshall alongside SA Chief Public Health Officer Dr Nicola Spurrier offered their condolences on the recent COVID-19 SA death, and confirmed that restrictions will not be lifted.
Despite promising results in case increases, the Premier states that should SA have left the virus unmitigated, we would have reached our peak at this current period.
Therefore, until more information can be sourced on Australia’s trajectory, no States or Territories across the country will be lifting restrictions.
The new modelling which will be presented to the National Cabinet in two weeks will clearly show occurrence rates in Australia.
The spread will be consolidated into one model which showcases the likely peak, where it will likely occur and when, which the public will be able to digest.
He also stated that SA will be looking at other regions who hit their peak before us to anticipate what sort of medical care will be expected when it occurs here.
Dr Nicola Spurrier also confirmed that the families and close friends of the SA man who has died from COVID-19 were contacted and advised to quarantine when they case became clear.
She also says that hospitals are still providing for those who need alternative care but extra measures have been implemented to ensure they and their visitors are safe.
