South Australia’s COVID-19 cluster has doubled after the state recorded an additional six new locally acquired cases. Of the new infections, five have been linked to the Tenafeate Winery exposure site with another testing positive after being deemed a close contact at a Greek restaurant on Halifax Street. Health authorities also confirmed a positive case attended the Gawler & District College B–12 school in Evanston on Tuesday. “This is exactly and precisely why we needed to move South Australia into a lockdown situation,” Premier Steven Marshall said on Wednesday afternoon. “In fact, I’m very grateful to the people of South Australia who have abided by the new restrictions since they were announced on Monday, and of course the lockdown situation that was put in place as of 6:00 yesterday. “It would have been a very difficult situation if these six new cases were out and about in the community. “This Delta variant is extraordinarily transmissible, and this disease thrives on indecision. “We’ve gone hard, we’ve gone early, we’ve gone with the cooperation of the people of South Australia and we need that cooperation to continue into the future.”
