Three new COVID-19 cases have been confirmed in South Australia today, taking the states reported cases to 935 to date.

Three new COVID-19 cases have been confirmed in South Australia today, taking the states reported cases to 935 to date.

Two of the three cases are men in their 50s, both of which are South Australian residents and attended the same event in South Australia, who also had guests from interstate. While the cases are currently under investigation, SA Health states they believe the virus was passed on to the duo from an interstate traveller at the event. Both of the individuals with COVID are vaccinated.

SA Health is expected to report on the exposure sites correlated to the confirmed cases later.

The third confirmed case is a child who acquired her infection overseas and has been in quarantine since arrival. Since November 23, there has been a total of 13 COVID cases confirmed. A total of 10,728 tests were undertaken in South Australia yesterday.

At the time of writing, South Australia’s vaccination rates are inching closer to that crucial 90 per cent double vaccinated rate. A total of 80.8 per cent of the eligible South Australian population has received both doses, with 89.4 per cent having had their first dose.

SA Health has identified new COVID-19 exposure locations in South Australia associated with a positive case of COVID-19.
