ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “Qld records 16 new community cases of COVID-19, 11 detected in ship off Gladstone coast | ABC News” – below is their description.

Queensland has recorded 16 new community cases of COVID-19 in the past 24 hours, Deputy Premier Steven Miles says.

All the cases are directly linked to the Delta outbreak which started at Indooroopilly State High School, in Brisbane’s inner west.

Three are students at Ironside State School, in the Brisbane suburb of St Lucia, and nine are household contacts linked to the school.

Four cases are linked to Brisbane Grammar School, one is a teacher, two are students and one is a household contact.

The school outbreak has now grown to 79 cases, including 38 students and four teachers.

Of the new cases, Mr Miles said three were infectious in the community for one day and one was infectious for two days.

“Twelve were in quarantine throughout the entire infectious period, so the fact they are all linked and mostly were in quarantine is a positive development as well,” Mr Miles said.
