Queensland has recorded one new locally acquired Covid-19 case, as health authorities warn the risk of dual threats is still looming.
The new case left hotel quarantine on July 17, and tested positive yesterday.
There are two major virus concerns plaguing the Sunshine State: a vaccinated Gold Coast man who returned from China and tested positive almost two weeks after he left hotel quarantine; and a Qantas flight attendant who brought a Sydney man into the state despite him being a close contact of a NSW case.
Police fined the man almost $10,000 and his female accomplice $4000 late on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, the source of the returned traveller’s infection was confirmed as being from hotel quarantine.
Nineteen crew members on board a ship in Queensland waters have tested positive.
More to come.
