There have been two new cases of COVID-19 today. There have been a total of 740 cases notified in South Australia.

Today’s cases include a man in his 70s and a woman in her 60s, who both acquired their infections overseas. The man has been in a medi-hotel since his arrival and the woman is considered an old infection and has been added to our case numbers as she has not been counted overseas.

A man in his 30s was admitted to the Royal Adelaide Hospital yesterday and is in a stable condition.
