Two new COVID-19 cases recorded in Queensland

Queensland has recorded two new cases of COVID-19, but officials say there is no need for concern.

One of the new cases is a returned overseas traveller who was already in hotel quarantine.

The second case is a known contact of the Corrective Services cluster and was already in isolation.


“So, once again we’re really happy with that Queensland, so well done,” Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said.

It takes the state’s total number of cases to 1152.

However there are now just 19 active cases across Queensland with five more patients recovering.

Testing rates were low on Saturday with just over 3600 swabs conducted.
