The state currently has 23 known active cases of the virus, with four patients in the Royal Adelaide Hospital, two of whom are in intensive care.

Meanwhile, the government is urging people who need medical attention not to avoid seeking help because of the pandemic.

SA’s Health Minister Stephen Wade said there had been a reduction in the number of people presenting to hospital emergency departments, ambulance call-outs and visits to GPs.

South Australians have been urged not to delay seeking treatment for chronic health conditions or illnesses.
