South Australia announces FIVE new coronavirus infections as the Adelaide cluster threatens to explode to 34 cases – and it all links back to hotel quarantine
The new cases range from a teenager to an adult in their 50s, and all have symptoms.
Four of the cases are linked to a large family in north Adelaide where the outbreak begin, but worryingly one is still being investigated.
Speaking on Tuesday afternoon, Steven Marshall described the Adelaide cluster as ‘nasty’ and warned ‘we’re not out of the woods yet’.
20 cases are now linked to the cluster, with another 14 cases ‘suspected’, officials said, and likely to be confirmed in the coming days.
The state’s chief health officer Nicola Spurrier confirmed on Tuesday that an 80-year-old woman infected in aged care had the same strain of the disease that escaped hotel quarantine.
