Qld records one new case of COVID-19

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

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk confirmed the patient was a returned overseas traveller who was in hotel quarantine.

There are now 31 active cases of the virus in the state.


4933 tests were conducted in the last 24 hours which is still below the target of 5,000-10,000 but is a drastic increase on the day before.

Only  2934 tests were done in the previous reporting period, leading Queensland Health authorities to issue an urgent plea for more people to get tested, particularly in the Goodna and Redbank areas.
