Toddler linked to Queensland aviation cluster tests positive to coronavirus
A three-year-old Queensland child has become infected with coronavirus.
The child was already in home quarantine when their infection was detected and linked to the aviation cluster
This was the only locally-acquired case recorded in the state today, alongside one interstate-acquired case.
Because the child was detected in home quarantine, Chief Health Officer Dr Jeannette Young says there’s no concern the child has spread the virus further.
Similarly, Dr Young is not concerned by the interstate-acquired case – a woman who returned to Brisbane from Victoria.
The Queensland resident was notified on her flight home she had tested positive to the virus and was met by authorities at the airport.
“She’s not a risk to anyone either,” Dr Young said.
