Queensland Health confirms COVID-19 case in Cairns as it lists 70 new sites of exposure through close and casual contact


A series of new exposure sites have been listed by Queensland Health after a new case of COVID-19 was detected in Cairns.

The infection spreading in the far north of the state means that the sites on alert now extend from the Gold Coast to Cairns.

Health officials have not yet determined how the man, who is fully vaccinated, contracted the virus.

It will be included in Wednesday’s daily update.

As of Tuesday, 16 new cases were reported.

This brings the total number of the current outbreak to 47 cases.

Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr Jeannette Young said the goal was still to lift the lockdown at 4 p.m. on Sunday.

The prerequisite for this to happen, she said, was that all new local cases were detected in isolation.
