Returned traveller from India among positive cases in South Australia

South Australia Health has revealed that a woman in her 30s who had returned from India on a repatriation flight to Adelaide last month was previously infected.

The woman stayed in mandatory quarantine in Adelaide after arriving on a Singapore Airlines flight from Mumbai that carried 260 passengers on June 27.

According to SA Health, the woman had tested negative twice during her stay in hotel quarantine. But a member of her family had returned a positive test last month, which prompted the authorities to conduct another test which revealed she had an old infection.
SBS Punjabi understands that at least three travellers who had returned on the same flight had tested positive last month.
The second case that was recorded on Wednesday is a woman in her 50s who had flown into Melbourne from Pakistan and had returned two negative tests while in hotel quarantine there.

She travelled to SA after she was given a go-ahead to travel on 9 July where she returned a positive test. She will remain in isolation for another nine days as a precaution.
