South Australia has recorded two new locally acquired cases overnight with both cases linked to the Tenafeate Creek winery.
It comes after the state announced an additional six cases up to 4:30pm ACST on Wednesday, prompting residents to line up in drove at testing clinics overnight.
Premier Steven Marshall says the state is not “out of the woods yet” despite expressing hope over the high rates of testing.
“I’m cautiously optimistic but a huge number of results have come in over the last 24 hours, and that’s what our report is to you today but we’re not out of the woods yet,” he said.
“There’s still a huge number of test results to come in, a huge number of people who are in quarantine at the moment, and of course our primary goal is to slow and stop the spread of this disease as quickly as we can.”
