SA Health have announced that South Australia’s six day streak with no new cases has ended with a new case.

A male in his 30s, who arrived on August 1 on a repatriation flight from India has tested positive for Coronavirus.

His positive result became apparent on his quarantine day 12 test.

It is not uncommon to be picked up as a positive case on the day 12 test, SA Health say as the time frame can be anywhere up to 10 days.

SA Health has said that he is well and is at no risk or concern to the community, as he has been in isolation for this entire period of time.

This individual will be required to continue isolating at the Medi-Hotel, with SA Health stating that it is likely he will complete his isolation in 10 days time.

Other travellers who returned on the repatriation flight will be cleared of the Medi-Hotel.

SA has also experienced another record breaking day of testing with 6,808 tests conducted at SA Pathology and private providers over the last day.

Over 13% of the South Australian population has now been tested for COVID-19.

Commercial flights have also resumed with SA Health confirming that passengers who enter SA will be going into Medi-Hotels across the city, and are tested on day one and day 12.
