COVID-19 case update

03 January 2021

One new positive COVID-19 case has been recorded in the Northern Territory in the past 24 hours.

This case is the previously reported 36-year-old crew member from the livestock export vessel, Diamantina, who required further testing.

He will remain in isolation and under managed safe care at Royal Darwin Hospital (RDH) until he returns two negative tests, having been in RDH since Monday 28 December.

Additionally, Northern Territory COVD-19 statistics have been adjusted following a testing review of historical cases, two cases have been de-notified as further testing revealed that the initial tests were falsely positive.

This takes the total number of cases diagnosed in the Northern Territory to 82.

All cases have been related to international or interstate travel, with no cases of community transmission.
