Only two days after South Australia started their 6-day lockdown to avoid a second COVID-19 wave, some restrictions were lifted today after knowing a patient lied to contact tracers on where they contracted the virus.

Premier Steven Marshall, in a press conference today, said that being ‘fuming’ was an understatement about the issue.

It has also started the conversation of how the community can help contact tracers to be ahead of the game in controlling COVID-19.

New research from the University of South Australia is looking for participants to see their views on sharing more information at the day of testing, rather than waiting for a positive result before starting the contact tracing process.
