  • Sky News Australia published this video item, entitled “Returned overseas travellers contracted virus in SA hotel quarantine facility” – below is their description.

    South Australia Chief Public Health Officer Nicola Spurrier has revealed two returned overseas travellers in hotel quarantine have been added to the Parafield cluster after genomic sequencing confirmed they had the same strain of the virus. Professor Spurrier said the data showed the pair in hotel quarantine contracted the virus during their stay at the Peppers Hotel. The revelation comes as the state records zero new cases of the coronavirus, with a total of 29 now linked to the Parafield cluster. Professor Spurrier also confirmed the police examination of CCTV footage stills – as part of the investigation into the state’s lockdown lie – revealed “no one was in the wrong place at the wrong time”. She said the investigation would continue, however, in the coming days with a more thorough look at the entire video sequence.
