“One of our youngest” Toddler confirmed as Qld’s latest virus case

Queensland has recorded one new case of coronavirus in the past 24 hours.

Deputy Premier and Health Minister Steven Miles confirmed the latest case is a two-year-old boy, who had recently been travelling overseas with family.

So we have one positive case of COVID-19 overnight in Queensland. It’s a 2-year-old boy in the south side of Brisbane,” Mr Miles told reporters on Friday.

“They were known to have been travelling overseas with their family recently and so is therefore considered an overseas-acquired, not locally-acquired case.”

Mr Miles said the toddler and his family quarantined in Victoria before returning to Queensland.

“It would be one of our youngest cases,” the Health Minister confirmed.

There are now just four active cases across the whole state, with two patients in hospital, including one in intensive care.

Two of the four active cases are here on the Gold Coast.

Today’s new case takes the state total to 1064, with 1051 people now fully recovered from the disease.
