South Australia has recorded one new case of coronavirus, a woman in her 30s who travelled from overseas.

The woman, who is now in hotel quarantine, travelled from South Africa to South Australia, on her way to New South Wales.

Deputy Chief Public Health Officer Mike Cusack said she was not infectious and posed no risk of transmission to the public.

Dr Cusack said the woman, who was travelling alone, had an “old infection” of the coronavirus that causes COVID-19, which she had contracted overseas.

He said the woman’s infection was only added to South Australia’s tally because this was her first COVID-19 test.

More to come.
