Queensland’s new mystery case confirmed to be Delta variant, COVID-19



QUEENSLAND’S new mystery case has been confirmed as having the highly contagious Delta variant of coronavirus.

This has plunged half of Australia including Queensland into lockdown.

Report has it that a 19-year-old clerical worker from the Prince Charles Hospital had last week travelled to Magnetic Island in the state’s north and visited markets in Townsville on her trip.

It explained that she first developed symptoms last Monday, and lives with four other people in their Sandgate home with such.

A Queensland Health spokeswoman confirmed on Tuesday afternoon that the hospital worker had the Delta variant.

Further sequencing work is being undertaken to determine if it clusters with any known cases as the woman went to Sandgate Woolworths on Sunday and then the Bay Health Gym.

Information revealed that she worked at the Prince Charles Hospital on Tuesday and Wednesday before flying to Townsville on flight VA369 from Brisbane on Thursday where she spent one hour at Brewery Cafe at the airport before going to Magnetic Island.

However, Annastacia Palaszczuk plunged parts of Queensland into a snap three-day lockdown after reporting two local cases of COVID-19 on Tuesday.

The stay-at-home directive came into effect from 6pm on Tuesday for 11 local government areas in Queensland’s southeast as well as Townsville City, Palm Island and Magnetic Island.

One of the new cases revealed on Tuesday was linked to the mine cluster from the Northern Territory, while the other was described by the Premier as a brand-new community acquired case.

“I can’t be definitive how they got it,” Ms Palaszczuk stated.

She said she was concerned by the multiple sources of infections threatening the state, the mine cluster, and five Virgin flights with an infected flight attendant on-board and the Portuguese restaurant outbreak.
