There have been three new cases of COVID-19 today, all reported from a medi-hotel. There has been a total of 587 cases notified in South Australia.

Today’s cases include a man in his 30s, female in her 20s and a child, who all recently returned from overseas and have been in a medi-hotel since their arrival.

After further investigation, one of the overseas acquired cases reported yesterday was found to have been previously diagnosed overseas, therefore this case has been removed from South Australia’s total.
