FULL STORY: P9 Source case identified The Harvest Press Juice bar was one of several new casual exposure sites announced on Sunday A CAIRNS woman who allegedly lied to authorities upon entering the Territory has been declared as the source of the Top Ends Covid-19 cluster. On Sunday, Chief Minister Michael Gunner announced no new cases had been recorded overnight, with the source of the Top Ends outbreak identified as a 21-year-old woman who flew from Cairns to Darwin on October 29. Mr Gunner revealed the woman was fined $5024 after allegedly lying on her border entry form. We now know that before arriving in Darwin, she spent time in Melbourne, which is almost certainly where she contracted the virus, he said. Five hours of interviews with detectives found she had flown from Cairns to Adelaide before driving to Mel bourne on October 21. She spent four days in Victoria. She drove back to Adelaide on October 25, flew back to Cairns and then to Darwin on October 29. She was moved to the Centre for National Resilience last Friday, upon being identified as a close contact of the initial Covid-19 case, a 26 year-old man. She tested positive for Covid-19 on Friday evening. Prior, the woman had received one dose of a Covid vaccine. Mr Gunner said given the woman and the initial case were known to one another, it did not classify as community transmission. He further urged anyone travelling to the Territory to be truthful with authorities. These actions have put the Territory at risk. They forced Katherine into lockdown and forced Katherine businesses to shut, he said. While there were compassionate reasons for her decision to visit Victoria, there were not compassionate reasons for lying to the Territory and coming here from a hotspot. Shes been issued a $5024 fine and shell also pay for a $2500 stay at Howard Springs. Mr Gunner also commended the 26-year-old index cases swift actions to get tested. On Saturday, about 2600 tests were taken, all negative. The same day almost 4000 people either received a dose of the Covid-19 or booked their jab in.
