No new cases in Qld, as NSW nears two weeks of no community transmission

Queensland has once again recorded no new cases of coronavirus overnight.

It’s the fourth day straight of now new infections, after three were recorded last Friday.

Authorities aren’t concerned about any of those cases, which were all diagnosed while in quarantine.


There was also a slight increase in testing numbers over the last 24 hours, with around 2,500 coming forward over the last period.

Just under 2,000 came forward in the previous period.

There are now seven active cases left within the Sunshine State.

While we also remain on track to reopen our border to the whole of New South Wales, after no new cases of community transmission were recorded there overnight.

Eleven new infections were reported, but all were diagnosed while in hotel quarantine and therefore do not pose a threat.

New South Wales has now gone 11 days without a new case of community transmission, and will need to continue that streak until November 1, if the borders are to reopen.
