Queensland Health has announced three new COVID-19 cases in the State but none are currently considered to be a risk to the community.
The first is a man in his 30s who has tested positive while in hotel quarantine after returning from Sydney. He remains in hotel quarantine and is being managed by the Gold Coast Hospital and Health Service.
The second and third cases relate to crew on board a cargo vessel off the coast of Queensland. They are likely to be transferred to shore and admitted to Townsville University Hospital. All other crew from the vessel have been tested and are confirmed negative.
There are currently nine active cases in Queensland, with three patients in hospital. None are in intensive care.
A Queensland Health spokesperson said the three women who were admitted to the Princess Alexandra Hospital after testing positive to COVID-19 late last month have all now been assessed and determined to no longer be infectious.
The trio – who have been the subject of intense media scrutiny – have all been discharged from hospital.
Darling Downs Health reported on Thursday that its one active case – a man who had returned from Afghanistan – had recovered and there were now zero active cases in the Darling Downs Health region.
