COVID-19 update 29 November 2021

29 November 2021

There has been one new case of COVID-19 reported today. There have been 932 cases reported in South Australia to date.

Today’s case is a woman in her 20s who acquired her infection interstate.

We have always used the most up-to-date data and advice available to guide our response to COVID-19. South Australia’s population data has been adjusted to reflect the absence of international students, and from today the population will be 9,000 less than current figures show. This will increase South Australia’s vaccination rate by half a percentage point. South Australia will also move to reporting vaccinations rates for 12 years and above from today. SA Health data for 12+ will be generated at a different time of day to the Commonwealth data.
