More coronavirus cases linked to Brisbane Youth Detention Centre - 22-Aug”

Another male worker at the facility lives in North Ipswich, who has a relative who was in the Ipswich Hospital.

Palaszczuk said she was not concerned by the new cases on offshore ships, and those were being dealt with.

Infectious disease expert Nigel McMillan said it was particularly worrying how many people could be walking around asymptomatic. Even the most minor symptom might be COVID-19.

Dr Young said there were about 500 staff who worked at the centre, and that some worked in other workplaces. Check your state's restrictions on gathering limits.

Queensland Health is putting in place urgent extra protection measures after a further six people associated with the Brisbane Youth Detention Centre tested positive to COVID-19 yesterday.

Emergency departments will be required to use PPE to treat all patients and hospital visitors will be limited as soon as possible.

"This is a very important time, especially over the next couple of days, and we do expect there could be even more cases linked to this cluster".

Authorities are attempting to track down a number of young people who had been released from the detention centre before the outbreak was uncovered. "If I were to get COVID, the risk of complications is increased as my lung function is really poor because of the spinal cord injury".

Revealing the new cases, the state government acted swiftly to immediately limit gatherings in homes and public places with no Covid-safe plan to 10 people.

Three additional cases also have been diagnosed with team members on boats, Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said on Saturday.

Dr Young gave a stark warning to all Queenslanders.

"Our message to Queenslanders is that if you are sick, stay-at-home and get tested".

"As we get that information we will absolutely be letting the community know", she said. Six people in the state have died.

A third man who works in the centre also has done work for QBuild at SpringwoodSchool, which Young said she would be working with to decide whether it opens or not on Monday.

Both of the new cases are related to the seven cases announced yesterday, Chief Health Officer Jeannette Young.

"We have been planning for this and we have all of our management systems in place".

"Our rapid response capability has already been deployed".

Deputy Premier Steven Miles said more than 6,800 tests were conducted in the 24 hours to Sunday morning, but insisted many more were needed.

'If you look at the cluster that arose out of the Crossroads Hotel in New South Wales it is now in the order of one hundred or so'.

He said it was concerning the origin of the Queensland cluster remained a mystery.
