Queensland has recorded 10 new local cases of coronavirus overnight, all linked to the Indooroopilly cluster in Brisbane’s western suburbs.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said she expected a slight spike in numbers as the 14,000 people in home quarantine are tested before they finish their 14 days isolation.
“We expect similar numbers over the next couple of days as the cluster keeps progressing through and having their day 12 test,” she said.
Queensland will also be opening up to South Australia from midday, but you have to fly into Queensland, not drive given the situation in NSW.
Palaszczuk said she was “very concerned” with the worsening COVID-19 situation, especially with risks for the border bubble with NSW.
“To Queenslanders who live on the Gold Coast – New South Wales border as well, or any Queenslanders in some parts of our state, please do not cross into New South Wales,” she said.
“We will be monitoring the situation extremely closely over the next 24 to 48 hours. We do not want to see that as far as creeping north. If we have to implement harder measures, we will.”
