NSW COVID instances are on the rise, ACT COVID instances are on the rise, Victoria COVID instances are on the rise, Qld COVID instances are on the rise, Canberra lockdown begins, Sydney lockdown continues, Melbourne lockdown continues
Queensland Prime Minister Annastacia Palaszczuk says she is closely monitoring the situation in NSW and will later be briefed on the situation in the southern state at a national cabinet meeting.
The border bubble between Qld and NSW remains on a knife edge as cases increase in some northern counties, Ms. Palaszczuk said on today’s coronavirus update.
“I think from our perspective, from the Queensland perspective, as I said yesterday, we are very concerned about how the clusters will continue to expand,” she said.
“I think we should hear very clearly from NSW what their clear plan for containment is. The last thing we want to see is this virus spreading in the north, the virus spreading in the south and spreading across the country. “
Meanwhile, Dr. Jeannette Young, Queensland’s chief health officer, said the ACT also poses a serious threat to her state.
The Sunshine State declared the country’s capital a coronavirus hotspot last night.
“The ACT was one of the last places in our country that Queensland people could easily travel to,” said Dr. Young.
“If you think we had restrictions on other states and other states had restrictions on us. So I really think a lot of travelers went to ACT. “
Anyone in Queensland who has been in quarantine since the 9th from 1:00 a.m. tomorrow, anyone arriving from ACT in Queensland must be in hotel quarantine.
