Shocking details emerge over activities of two infected 19yos

Horrific allegations are emerging about the activities of two 19-year-old girls, who are accused of bringing coronavirus back into Queensland by lying to border police.

The two returned positive tests over Tuesday night, the first two cases of the virus to be diagnosed in the Sunshine State that weren’t in hotel quarantine since May.

It’s prompted grave fears of an outbreak across the southeast, with both girls both out and about within the community for eight days before finally getting tested.

Hundreds of people across the Logan, Springfield and Acacia Ridge area had to be tested yesterday, putting the whole region on notice.

As health authorities scramble to contact trace, more and more details are coming to light over exactly where the pair have been and where they may have become infected, as a criminal investigation gets underway.

Police are reportedly looking into whether the girls provided fake names and addresses on their border passes to avoid the mandatory hotel quarantine rule in place.

There are also allegations that the pair attended an illegal party while in Melbourne, which had to be broken up by police.

Once returning to the state, one of the girls is believed to have worked two days at the Parklands Christian College before calling in sick.

It’s understood she went to the doctor on Saturday where she was told to get tested immediately, but was still out and about in the community until finally going to get tested on Monday.

Between the test and receiving the result, it’s reported she was still out and about.

A 22-year-old sister of one of the girls has already tested positive as well, with health authorities putting out a long list of businesses that the three have visited over the last week and a half.
