COVID positive transport worker in South Africa

South Australia has recorded a new case of coronavirus in another transport worker, after a Victorian man in his 20s tested positive at a checkpoint.

SA Health said the man, a commercial transport worker, was crossing the state into Western Australia on Saturday.

He tested positive at the Yamba checkpoint and is currently being escorted to Adelaide by South African police, where he will be quarantined at the hotel.

“The investigation is ongoing, but currently no public exhibition site has been identified,” SA Health said in a statement on Saturday afternoon.

It comes after a truck driver in his 60s, who lives in Adelaide, tested positive at a checkpoint in Yamba on Thursday evening as he was driving through New South Wales from New South Wales from the South.

Five exposure sites were identified for this case.

Meanwhile, a Virgin Australia flight attendant in quarantine has tested positive for the coronavirus.

SA Health claims the man was contagious while working on flight VA219 from Melbourne to Adelaide on October 4.

State health officials texted 25 passengers who were on the flight, with people called to determine quarantine and testing arrangements.

“Since the flight was departing from Victoria, all passengers had to be quarantined for 14 days upon arrival,” SA Health said.

“The case did not enter Adelaide Airport and no other exhibition locations will be listed.”
