With two mystery Covid cases detected in just a few hours, there are fears Queensland could be dealing with a new virus cluster.
Queensland has been rocked by the emergence of two new mystery cases, with the concerning development coming after the state confirmed no new cases on Monday.
NSW recorded 787 cases and 12 deaths on Monday, with Premier Gladys Berejiklian unveiling her plan for what life looks like at 80 per cent vaccination goal and beyond.
Victoria recorded 705 Covid cases and one death on Monday.
Queensland health authorities are scrambling to find the source of two new Covid-19 cases, which emerged just hours apart in Brisbane.
Adalong Guesthouse in South Brisbane is under police guard and more than a dozen people have been forced into isolation following the latest Covid case, according to The Courier Mail.
The publication reports the second case is not believed to be linked to the infection detected in an aviation worker – a man in his 30s – which was revealed late on Monday night.
Queensland Health are expected to confirm three new cases today, the aviation worker, his wife and the second mystery case.
The source of the man’s infection is still unknown and he has not travelled interstate or overseas recently.
A public health alert was issued for several locations in Eatons Hill, Aspley and Albany Creek in Brisbane’s north and Rocklea in the city’s south after he travelled around the city while unknowingly infectious.
The last reported case of community transmission in Brisbane was announced weeks ago and was linked to the Sunnybank cluster.
These are the first mystery cases Queensland has recorded in 50 days.
