The State’s top doctor has revealed the two women from Logan who lied about travelling to Melbourne are the most likely cause of the state’s latest coronavirus outbreaks.
Chief Health Officer Dr Jeanette Young confirmed today that she is confident the Corrections and Ipswich Hospital clusters were linked to the pair.
The women travelled to Melbourne where they are believed to have contracted COVID-19, before bringing the virus back into Queensland when they lied on their border declaration passes about having been in the state.

In some positive news, Ms Young said the state’s clusters appeared to be all under control and that she should be able to declare the youth detention centre cluster over in the next few days.
While the state recorded zero new cases today, Queenslanders are being warned we’re not out of the woods yet.
She also revealed that more than 1 million people have been swabbed for the virus in Queensland since the pandemic began.
