South Australian Premier Steven Marshall has indicated that the State Government is looking at lifting some of the restrictions brought on to stem the spread of the coronavirus.

Elective surgeries could resume within the coming weeks, which would likely represent the first of a small handful of restrictions being eased.

Restrictions on playgrounds and sport could also be lifted within the early stages of going back to “normal.”

The news comes after modelling presented to the national Cabinet revealed that Australia is on course to remain on top of the virus’s spread.

Other priorities will be allowing offices and factories to return to work should the spread of the virus be successfully managed over the next month.

South Australia is among the states returning promising figures on the spread of COVID-19, with just one new case recorded in the state yesterday.

However, the coming days are expected to give a better indication of the virus’s spread as testing continues to be ramped up as part of a two-week coronavirus “testing blitz.”
