QUEENSLAND has recorded one local case of COVID-19 but authorities say it poses no risk to the state.

“They were the first one and then the parents became infected,” Dr Young said.

“Although this child tested negative four times, we did serology which confirms that they had the disease while they were in quarantine and fully recovered.

“We do know that happens with younger people but that is of no risk because they were in quarantine the entire time.

“They have now fully recovered so they can leave quarantine, leave isolation.

“Other than that, no new cases, which is excellent news.”

The Health Minister also revealed the state broke a vaccination record on Thursday.

“A big shout out to our vaccination clinics. 20,420 vaccinations yesterday,” Yvette D’Ath said.

“That is the highest daily number.

“We are thrilled so many are coming forward and getting vaccinated.”
