Seventeen South Australians are awaiting test results for novel coronavirus – but the likelihood that they have the condition remains low.
Two test results have come back positive and 15 test results have come back negative. This takes the total number of South Australians who have had tests for novel coronavirus to 34 individuals.
Both people who have tested positive for novel coronavirus are currently in isolation at the RAH and are in a stable condition.
Both cases have recently arrived from Wuhan, China on Guangzhou to Adelaide flight CZ663 (China Southern Airlines) arriving in Adelaide on the 21 January 2020.
Contact tracing is underway for passengers who were on board this flight; anyone experiencing symptoms consistent with coronavirus should contact 1300 232 272.
All of the people currently under investigation are being managed using standard infection control protocols and we are unable to release details for privacy reasons.
In line with Commonwealth advice, any travellers who have travelled to mainland China and left mainland China on or after 1 February; anyone from Hubei Province, China; and anyone who has had contact with a confirmed case of novel coronavirus, must stay isolated for 14 days.
We continue to work closely with the Commonwealth Department of Health and Health Departments in all jurisdictions, as well as local GPs, to monitor the situation closely and provide support as required.
