COVID alarm in Qld as two community cases emerge

Queensland is on COVID alarm again, with two more cases in the community on Wednesday.

One, in the south-eastern town of Warwick, is thought to have been infectious in the community for up to 10 days.

They are believed to be linked to the virus cluster in the NSW border town of Moree. Three cases were detected in the Queensland town of Goondiwindi last week, linked to a funeral in Moree.

The Warwick case is the first additional infection to be detected in Queensland since that outbreak emerged.

In Warwick, 78.9 per cent of eligible people have had one COVID vaccine, while 60.2 per cent are fully vaccinated.

Wednesday’s other new community case is on the Gold Coast, and has authorities on edge.

“We do not know at this stage where the case from the Gold Coast has come from,” Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said.

“We need to make sure there are no other cases on the Gold Coast so now I’m saying to Gold Coast residents and families – if you are not vaccinated, go and get vaccinated. If you have any symptoms, please go and get tested.”
