Two new local COVID-19 cases in Qld

QUEENSLAND has recorded another two locally acquired cases of COVID-19, as the clusters in the state continue to grow.

One is a three-year-old girl who is a household contact of the aviation cluster who has been in-home quarantine.

The other is a 19-year-old woman who arrived on a flight from Victoria.


She arrived on flight JQ562 from Melbourne yesterday and went straight into hotel quarantine. Those on board the flight are now being contacted.

Chief Health Officer Dr Jeanette Young said the fresh cases were not a concern.

“Neither of them I am concerned about but I do need to see more testing to make sure that we don’t have any spread from our current clusters,” Dr Young said.

Queensland Health officials are still trying to determine if there is any more risk posed to the community from the Brisbane woman who tested positive yesterday.
