The territory now joins South Australia, which also recorded no active cases of the virus last Friday.

“I would like to acknowledge these people that have been diagnosed and we have cared for them and we wish them all well,” she said.

However, Fyles urged Territorians to maintain social distancing, saying they were a “safe bubble” and she wanted to keep it that way.

“The Northern Territory presently has no diagnosed cases of coronavirus, [but] we have seen this in the ACT and then they got cases diagnosed, so it’s not a time to become complacent,” she said.

“We have a very vulnerable community, population, particularly with our Aboriginal Territorians and so I urge all Territorians to not become complacent off the back of this, to keep vigilant.

“The physical distancing, personal hygiene and if you are not feeling well, stay home.”

The territory has lifted a range of coronavirus restrictions, including the reopening of bars and beauty salons, much quicker than the rest of the country, but social distancing is still required.

To date, Australia has recorded 7080 cases of coronavirus, while the national death toll stands at 100.
