Sumary of NT detects two new COVID-19 cases:
- “The male is a health worker who initially had contact with an earlier positive case,” Chief Minister Michael Gunner told reporters on Friday.
- “We are feeling okay but we are still not completely confident that we have this thing contained,” Mr Gunner said.
- The 21-year-old lied on her border entry form late last month before travelling from Cairns to Darwin after visiting Victoria, where she’d contracted the virus.
- Health teams are now attempting to find the missing links between the two clusters, with Mr Gunner saying it was a “strange mystery”.
- Mr Gunner said it was possible the virus had been silently spreading and many more cases could be detected in the coming days.
- The woman was unvaccinated and travelled from Katherine to Robinson River – 1000km southeast of Darwin – where she tested positive, the first case reported in a remote NT Aboriginal community.
