South Australia coronovirus update as at 1 May 2021

There have been two new cases of COVID-19 today, both reported from a medi-hotel. There have been a total of 725 cases notified in South Australia.

Following further investigations, an historical case reported on Friday 23 April 2021 has been removed from our case numbers.

Today’s cases include a man in his 40s and a female child, who both acquired their infections overseas and have been in medi-hotels since their arrival. Two people remain in hospital in a stable condition.

Recent wastewater samples have returned a low positive result from the BH02 sub-catchment zone. SA Health will continue to monitor and retest in this catchment. This result could be explained by historic cases, however it is a timely reminder that people should get tested for COVID-19 with even the mildest of symptoms.

The BH02 sub-catchment zone includes suburbs from North Haven down to West Lakes Shore.
