Adelaide has recorded a new record high of confirmed cases of the virus, with three more confirmed cases recorded in the past 24 hours.
The state has now recorded 12 confirmed cases since Thursday and is currently on pace to hit 17.
However, there have been some cases that have already been confirmed, with the state government now predicting more to be confirmed in the coming weeks.
Health Minister Dr Sarah Jacobs has also said there are some “very, very high” cases of Zika in the state and there could be a few cases of people who have been infected with the virus who will not be brought to hospital.
There is also the potential for a spike in cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome, a neurological disorder that causes severe muscle weakness, a lack of movement and is fatal.
Dr Jacobs said a “very small number” of cases of cases were being reported in the CBD, but there were still many more cases to be found.
“We need to be mindful that if the trend continues then we could potentially see as many as 20 to 30 cases in Adelaide,” she said.
A total of 1,926 cases of dengue have been recorded in Adelaide since the virus was first detected in Brazil.
But the latest data from the state’s Health Department shows Adelaide recorded its highest number of confirmed dengues in nearly a month in December, with 1,732.
Since then, Adelaide has been hit with a record number of new cases, with more than 13,000 confirmed cases.
Adelaide has also recorded its lowest number of dents in 24 years.
While Adelaide’s population has increased from 4,700 in 2009 to 6,800 today, the city still has some of the highest levels of obesity in the country.
More than 50 per cent of Adelaide’s residents are aged 65 or over, and the city has the highest proportion of older people living alone at 27 per cent.
In a bid to boost its own image, the Adelaide City Council recently launched a new advertising campaign aimed at showing its residents the benefits of life in Adelaide.
It was aimed at young people, and it featured some of Adelaide City’s most iconic landmarks, including the iconic Adelaide Harbour Bridge.
City councillor Ben Brown said the new advertising would give people a “better idea of the city”.
“It’s going to be a really big part of our advertising campaign for a long time, and hopefully will make people think more about the quality of life here in Adelaide and its role in creating our great city,” he said.
