According to authorities, the man dined just metres from the woman at the Madtongsan IV Restaurant in Sunnybank on July 23.


He then went on to visit a number of busy locations in the West Moreton and Brisbane South area, including a major shopping centre, while unknowingly infectious with the virus.
