Covid is back in Queensland with a new case of coronavirus reported

Queensland has recorded a case of Covid-19 with the source of infection a mystery as authorities sent an urgent alert for potential exposure sites.

Queensland has registered a case of Covid-19 in the community, and the source of the infection remains a mystery so far.

Queensland Health said the man was in his 30s and had worked in aviation.

A public health alert has been issued for venues in Eatons Hill, Aspley and Albany Creek on the north side of Brisbane, as well as Truck Seats Corporation in Rocklea in the south of the city.

Mother Duck’s Nursery and Kindergarten in Eatons Hill was designated an informal call site last Thursday morning.

The man has not traveled interstate or out of the country recently.

The last known case of community transmission was in Brisbane weeks ago and was linked to a cluster in Sunny Bank on the south side of the city.

Brisbane is just days away from hosting the NFL Final between South Sydney Rabbits and Penrith Panthers.

It came as former Queensland Premier Anastasia Balachuk indicated that revised modeling due this week will set the state’s path to reopening the doors of NSW and Victoria.

Ms. Balachchuk was pressured to stick to a plan to reopen the country’s borders.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison said at the weekend he could not see why “Australians should be kept apart” if 80 per cent of the population were vaccinated.

He said prime ministers must honor the national plan so Australians can “reclaim their lives” by Christmas.

“It is important that we move forward. We cannot stay in second gear. We have to start living with the virus … This is where we need to be,” Mr. Morrison said.

More than two-thirds of eligible Queenslanders have now received their first dose of the vaccine.

Anyone between the ages of 12 and 60 is currently eligible for the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine in Queensland, with Moderna available at participating chemists.
