New COVID-19 case in Darwin

05 April 2020

Twenty-seven cases of COVID-19 have now been diagnosed in the Northern Territory, after a child tested positive overnight.

The child is a close contact of a confirmed case who’d recently returned from overseas.

All Northern Territory cases are connected to international or interstate travel and have been traced to their source.

There is currently no community transmission in the Northern Territory.

Community transmission occurs when a locally acquired case has not been able to be traced back to a known confirmed case.
