Steven Marshall reveals South Australia is on the ‘cusp’ of COVID-19 peak
Premier Steven Marshall has revealed South Australia’s “alarmingly accurate” COVID-19 modelling which he says indicates the state’s peak will between 6,000 and 10,000 cases per day.
“Rather than rely on only the national harmonised data and model, we’ve developed our own extrapolation by putting actuals into the model that Doherty uses, converting it over to Omicron, getting those actuals to be more predictive,” he said on Friday afternoon.
“We’re now told from the model that we saw today at the COVID-Ready Committee that the peak in South Australia is going to be between the 15th and the 25th of this month, so we’re right on the cusp of that at the moment.
“The range in terms of that peak is going to be between 6,000 and 10,000 cases per day.
“Can I tell you this model is alarmingly accurate when we look at where it has predicted and where we have actually landed, especially in the early days.”
Mr Marshall’s remarks come after he announced 5,679 new COVID-19 cases on Friday.
