No new cases in Qld as Melbourne trio busted trying to sneak in

Queensland has recorded a ‘double donut’ day, with no new COVID-19 cases detected both locally and in hotel quarantine.

It comes after more than 6000 people came forward for testing in the past 24 hours.

Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has confirmed seven cases remain active in the state, with two of those on the Gold Coast.


Meanwhile, three people have been busted trying to enter Queensland from the COVID-19 hotspot of Melbourne.

The trio were pulled up at Gold Coast Airport yesterday and immediately sent packing back to Victoria.

Police have ramped up patrols at airports across the state after the Greater Melbourne hotspot declaration kicked in at 1.00am on Saturday.

More than 3500 travellers were met by police at Coolangatta Airport yesterday, with 14 people sent into hotel quarantine.

While road borders have not been reinstated, officers have warned they’re keeping a close eye on the roads and are intercepting any vehicles they suspect could have come from Melbourne.
