    First South Australia COVID-19 case, in three weeks.

    A 35-year-old man tested positive for COVID-19 on arrival at Adelaide Airport yesterday morning, 16th June.

    However, this case will not be counted as a SA case, as it was already counted in Victoria, although being a Pakistan case in reality.

    The man had travelled from Pakistan to Melbourne on 6th June, and tested positive for COVID-19, whilst quarantined in a Melbourne hotel, on 9th June.

    He left quarantine after eight days because he had first developed his symptoms in Pakistan on 26th May.

    He then flew from Melbourne to Adelaide, South Australia, where he was tested again, and still found positive.
