22nd COVID-19 case in NT

An Alice Springs woman who has recently returned from the United Kingdom has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) this evening.

The woman, aged in her 20s, has been in self-quarantine since returning from overseas.

Under national medical guidelines, contact tracing on her flight is not required due to the delay between her return and becoming unwell.

She is now in the care of Alice Springs Hospital.

There have now been 22 cases of COVID-19 diagnosed in the Northern Territory.

All of these cases have been acquired overseas or interstate.
