ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “IN FULL: COVID-19 positive truck driver travels through SA, NSW and WA | ABC News” – below is their description.

South Australian authorities say they’re very concerned about a COVID-positive truck driver who passed through the state twice while making a return trip from New South Wales to Western Australia.

The man in his 20s stopped at a number of locations in South Australia on the 15th and 16th of September before heading to Western Australia.

He also came back through South Australia on the 18th of September before returning to New South Wales and testing positive to the virus.

Authorities say they’re treating the case as infectious for each of the days he was in South Australia.

They’re particularly concerned about locations where he stopped in the town of Penong on the Far West Coast.

A second driver who was travelling with him has tested negative.
