Paramedic forced into COVID hotel quarantine after transporting infected UK patient

A paramedic has gone into hotel isolation after transporting a COVID-19 patient from the UK to hospital in Perth while checks are made into whether proper health protocols were followed.

The patient, a woman in her 80s, arrived from the United Kingdom on January 2 and was symptomatic on arrival and subsequently tested positive.

Genomic testing is underway but it is not yet known if she has the more virulent strain of the virus.
