COVID-19 diagnosis for Darwin couple

A Darwin couple who recently returned from overseas travel have today tested positive for Coronavirus (COVID-19).

The couple, aged in their 70s, followed self-quarantine protocols on their return to Darwin two days ago and went to Royal Darwin Hospital after feeling unwell.

They are now in isolation under the care of the NT Health system and contact tracing has begun.

Eight Territorians have now tested positive for COVID-19, including a man being treated in the New South Wales (NSW) health system.
