One new case of coronavirus in Queensland

QUEENSLAND has recorded just one new case of COVID-19 in the last 24 hours.

Deputy Premier Steven Miles confirmed on Monday the patient is a teenage girl who had recently returned from overseas.

She has been in hotel quarantine and is now being managed by Metro South Health.


It leaves 17 active cases in Queensland.

Mr Miles again urged anyone who was displaying symptoms to come forward and get tested after another fall in numbers.

“The number of tests in the last testing period was 2,708, well below the level that we’d like to be testing at,” he said.

The state government has said it would like to see daily testing rates sit between 5000 and 10,000.

“So our other message for today is if for any reason you think you may have symptoms of COVID-19, please do go and get tested especially if you’re in the Ipswich region or the southern suburbs of Brisbane.”
