Strict virus lockdown in South Australia to end earlier than planned

Here’s Why The Guy Who Lied To SA’s Contract Tracers & Caused The Lockdown Won’t Be Fined

"The second outcome of that lie is this person has numerous associates, persons of interest that we are now trying to identify and locate that we would not have had to do so had they been truthful from the beginning", he said.

Despite such concerns, state officials said they would lift the lockdown on Saturday - three days earlier than planned - after recording only three new cases on Friday.

"We were operating on a premise that this person had simply gone to a pizza shop, (with) very short exposure and walked away having contracted the virus", Mr Stevens said.

Marshall said a man claimed he was a customer at a pizza parlour hotspot, leading authorities to believe the strain was virulent enough to be transmitted via a takeaway box.

But that would not include police action against the man because there was "no penalty associated with telling lies", said South Australia Police Commissioner Grant Stevens.

Police did not identify the man, but said he worked at the Woodville Pizza Bar in Adelaide.

'To say I am fuming about the actions of this individual is an absolute understatement.

The revelation came as the Parafield cluster in Adelaide's northern suburbs reached 25 infections, bringing the country's total infection number to 27,792, with 907 deaths reported since the start of the pandemic.

It also said the vaccine was well-tolerated and that side effects were mostly mild to moderate and cleared up quickly. Numerous countries have signed deals with the company already to receive millions of doses of its candidate vaccine.

"The selfish actions of this individual have put our whole state in a very hard situation".

But what he did not say initially was they he'd worked several shifts at the restaurant and was infected with the coronavirus along with another close contact of his who also worked at the pizza bar, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.It's unclear why the man misled contract tracers, the report said.

Thankfully for the people of Adelaide, the 36 new cases have proven to be nothing more than a temporary spike, and with only three new cases found on Friday (20 November), the state is continuing to slowly relax restrictions.

South Australia has imposed a strict lockdown as per which nobody is allowed to step out of the house, not even for exercising or walking their pets. There will be no dancing.

Private gatherings at licensed venues will be capped at 50 (with no stand-up consumption allowed).

Gyms will also open as restrictions ease at 11.59pm on Saturday and students will return to school on Monday. The use of face masks or face coverings outside the home are encouraged but not mandatory.

Locals are already free to exercise and, from tomorrow, most shops will be allowed to trade again.
