Aged care worker tests positive for coronavirus in Queensland

Aged care worker tests positive for coronavirus in Queensland

A spokesman for the Pinjarra Hills residential aged care community said the two staff members last worked on July 28.

Both of the male's loved ones are yet to test positive.

The 19-year-old and two 21-year-old women have been charged with fraud and a count of providing misleading documents, facing a fine of AU$13,345 (NZ$14332) and up to five years in prison.

Haja Timbo, 21, was with Olivia Winnie Muranga, 19, and Diana Lasu in Melbourne, where they hosted a drunken party at their Airbnb property that was shut down by Victorian police.

Their case has sparked outrage after the pair and one of their family members became Queensland's first community transmitted coronavirus cases since May.

Lasu and Muranga have since tested positive for coronavirus after they visited 11 venues in Brisbane.

"It's confusing, I do apologise", chief health officer Dr Jeannette Young said while explaining the weird link.

It was revealed on Wednesday Ms Muranga, a cleaner at Parklands Christian College in Park Ridge, west of Brisbane, did not self-isolate on her return to Logan, instead working three days at the private school before being later diagnosed with the virus.

She went to the doctor on Saturday, who said to get tested immediately, but she allegedly waited until Monday to do so.

"Restricted regions are in which, if individuals have any symptoms whatsoever, they ought to instantly have tested", Dr Young said.

'From the beginning of this, we have issued well over 1,100 infringement notices and 40 people have made false declarations at our borders, ' Queensland Police Commissioner Katarina Carroll said.

On Wednesday Queensland Deputy Police Commissioner Steve Gollschewski said the three "knowingly and deliberately deceived us" by allegedly lying about being in Victoria. "We are still working with the third person (to ensure contact tracing)".

The incident prompted Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk to announce all Sydneysiders will be banned from entering the state from Saturday.

"I know that the facility is organising ways for their residents to talk to their families", she said.

Queensland on Thursday recorded three new coronavirus cases, including two linked to a previously identified Sydney cluster.
