Active Cases Record to 17

A new Coronavirus case has been reported by South Australian Health Professor Nicola Spurrier. The newly confirmed case was a woman in her 20s returning to SA from Victoria, on a Jetstar flight JQ776 on November 9.

The woman is said to have worked in a Victorian aged care facility and had undergone several PCR tests in the duration of her stay. Whilst working, she did return a positive result last August. However, they cannot confirm if the recent positive result is residual or a fresh infection.  To date, they are still trying to determine the affirmation.

Professor Spurrier revealed that woman is symptomatic and is in a medi-hotel, and they are being very cautious calling this an infectious case.

During the flight, the woman sat next to two close contacts. Both have been quarantined in a hotel.

In addition, the Professor cited another two people who are considered casual contacts, now in-home quarantine. Yet, due to privacy, they cannot confirm whether the woman did come in contact with them.

South Australia now records 17 active cases.

After all, the woman was said to have been cautiously following safety measures and protocols as states and territories acclaim for returning travellers.

Although numerous restrictions were eased up in differing states, risks of infection are still prevalent. Hence, everyone is still encouraged to stay keen and cautious.
