Qld records no new virus cases

Health Minister Yvette D’Ath confirmed no new transmissions of the virus were diagnosed while there was one case recorded in an overseas traveller.Deputy chief health officer Dr Sonya Bennett said the latest overseas case was currently in hotel quarantine and had recently arrived from Pakistan.It comes after Queensland recorded one new locally acquired case of COVID-19 on Saturday following the easing of Brisbane’s snap three-day lockdown on Thursday.Ms D’Ath said state health officials were now confident they had the two COVID-19 clusters under control.“(It is) fantastic news. That, along with the one case yesterday, the one locally acquired case that was already in quarantine really high lights, I think, that we are making great progress in this most recent outbreak,” Ms D’Ath said.“We know COVID is not over and we are seeing still some disturbing statistics internationally – positive cases are happening every day overseas and people’s lives are being lost.One of the clusters emerged from the Princess Alexandra Hospital, but Ms D’Ath said the ward of concern, ward 5D, had undergone a deep clean since the two clusters emerged.More to come.
