South Australian health authorities are contacting people who attended an Adelaide auction last month over concerns they might have been exposed to coronavirus.

Key points:

  • Two people diagnosed with coronavirus in SA are being treated in the Royal Adelaide Hospital
  • Ray White real estate said the pair were at an auction last month, and that other attendees were being notified
  • It comes as a cruise ship carrying 2,000 passengers including an Adelaide couple is refused entry to another port

Ray White real estate said it was told two confirmed coronavirus victims attended a property on Pam Street at Firle on January 22.

It was revealed over the weekend that a couple in South Australia has been diagnosed with coronavirus and is being treated at the Royal Adelaide Hospital.

The couple — a man and woman both aged 60 — are from Wuhan in China and travelled to South Australia to visit relatives.

SA Health chief public health officer Dr Nicola Spurrier said authorities were using the couple’s phones in a bid to track their movements over the past two weeks.

“We’re in the process of looking at that data because it’s going to be very important from a public health point of view to actually be able to verify the places this couple has been,” she said.
