SA scores a hat-trick with three days of no new Covid-19 cases

There have been no new confirmed cases of Covid-19 in South Australia for three consecutive days as the state leads the country in suppressing the coronavirus.

The last new confirmed case of Covid-19 was recorded on Friday 17 April just as the state began its 'testing blitz'.

This milestone comes as 62 active cases remain in SA, two of which are in critical condition. Of the total 435 confirmed cases of Covid-19 85 per cent have recovered.

South Australia is one of three states to have recorded at least one day of no new cases, with Queensland and Western Australia today announcing no new cases.

Whether SA is able to maintain this streak is yet to be seen; the State today welcomed 374 repatriated Australians into hotels from India for their government-mandated two-week quarantine period.

Since February SA Pathology has tested 44,000 people for Covid-19.
