The 19-year-old’s unfortunate journey that sparked Queensland’s three-day lockdown
Queensland’s three-day snap lockdown is the result of an unvaccinated hospital receptionist testing positive for Covid after vacationing across the state – an unfortunate trip that infuriated the Prime Minister.
The 19-year-old woman from Sandgate in Brisbane, who worked at Prince Charles Hospital in Chermside, Brisbane, was reportedly infectious from Saturday June 19, before developing symptoms the following Monday.
She visited her local Woolworths and gymnasium on Sunday before working shifts ‘outside’ the Prince Charles Specialist’s Covid-19 service on Tuesday and Wednesday of last week.
On Thursday, June 24, she flew to Brisbane Airport to catch a flight to Townsville for a family vacation to nearby Magnetic Island.
After three nights on the island, she returned to Townsville and frequented the popular Townsville CBD markets on Sunday, June 27 before testing positive for the virus on Monday.
She then returned to Brisbane last Sunday. Family members and two friends are now also ill.
From 6:00 p.m. tonight to 6:00 p.m. Friday, South East Queensland, Townsville City, Palm Island and Magnetic Island will be stranded.
Prime Minister Annastacia Palaszczuk said she was “furious” with the teenage worker for potentially spreading the virus across the state.
“Despite health guidelines that she should have been vaccinated, she was not,” Palaszczuk said on Tuesday.
“Let me tell you, I’m absolutely pissed off about this. ”
It is one of two new local cases of coronavirus recorded in the state overnight, forcing south-eastern Queensland, Townsville and the main islands to close.
A miner from Ipswich, who returned home after working in the Northern Territory, also tested positive for the contagious Indian Delta variant, but authorities said early detection of the case meant the risk was low .
Meanwhile, health chief Jeannette Young said the 19-year-old vacationer has been symptomatic since Monday, June 21.
“It’s been 10 days in the infectious community… we need people to take this seriously.
“If you are not feeling well, regardless of the symptoms, you need to get tested.”
Southeast Queensland, Townsville, Magnetic Island and neighboring Palm Island will be stranded from 6 p.m. Tuesday until 6 p.m. Friday.
New Covid-19 clinics will also be set up on Magnetic Island and Townsville, with residents urged to get tested immediately.
Large queues had already formed at a test center set up in the old football stadium at lunchtime on Tuesday.
The 2,000 residents of Magnetic Island will now need to be tested for Covid-19.
