COVID-19 UPDATE: One new community case

Posted: 8am 30 Jul 2021

There has been one new case of COVID-19 in the community and one in hotel quarantine.

The case is a 17-year-old girl, who is a Indooroopilly State High School student. It is believed she has been infectious since July 27, but only became unwell yesterday. She was tested yesterday and her positive result was confirmed last night.

The school has been closed today for deep cleaning.

Health Minister Yvette D'Ath says the girl is from a family of five, who live at Taringa. At this stage it is not known what variant she has.

"Because this is an unknown, unlinked case at this stage ... until we get more information, masks are more important than ever," Mrs D'Ath says.

It brings Queensland's total number of active cases to 43. There have been more than 16,000 tests in the past 24 hours and more than 11,000 vaccinations administered.

Chief Health Officer Dr Jeannette Young says she is concerned about the new case because she is 'struggling to understand how she acquired it'. 

Dr Young says there have been 13 incursions of the virus in Queensland during the past six weeks and at any time someone without symptoms could have passed it on to someone else.

She is urging Queenslanders to be cautious until the vast majority of the population is vaccinated, and is calling on those in the 60+ years age group to get vaccinated because they are in the high-risk group of serious illness or death.

People living in greater Brisbane, or those who have visited the area are being urged to keep an eye on the Queensland Health website for possible exposure sites, which will be added today.
