ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “Queensland records 16 community cases of COVID-19 on day three of lockdown | ABC News” – below is their description.
Queensland has recorded 16 locally acquired cases as the south-east enters its third day of lockdown.
All are linked to the Indooroopilly State High School cluster which is now at 47 cases in total.
Nine of the 16 new cases are students.
One of the new cases is connected to Indooroopilly State High School, four cases have been recorded at Brisbane Grammar School and two cases are linked to Brisbane Girls Grammar School.
A further three cases are linked to Ironside State School, five cases are household or family contacts of already confirmed cases, and one case is the neighbour of a known case.
Deputy Premier Steven Miles said in the past 24-hour period, 34,718 tests were conducted.
“That is an excellent result. It’s shy of our record and shy of the target of what the Chief Health Officer has set for us to be in the 40,000s,” he said.
“We are extending hours of our testing locations and new sites are opening up.”
Queensland’s Chief Health Officer Dr Jeannette Young said it was “good” the cases were linked to the one cluster but was concerned about the origins of the outbreak.
“We know the very first two cases that arrived into Queensland on June 29, but I don’t know how it’s got from either of those two people to the first family in that Indooroopilly area,” she said.ABC News (Australia) YouTube Channel
