World news – UPDATE: Hervey Bay result linked to positive nurse


The case, which produced a positive result at the Hervey Bay lab, has been linked to a cluster where a nurse at Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane contracted the virus.

She and her sister were part of a chicken party that was traveling to Byron Bay. The Chronicle believes the woman whose test was confirmed positive in Hervey Bay this week was also at the party.

The woman is also believed to be not a Hervey Bay local, as has been widely reported, but is from the Wide Bay area and is currently in isolation at Bundaberg Hospital.

However, contact tracing is ongoing. However, the Chronicle believes the woman became aware of the risk while she was still in the south, and as a result, minimal, if any, stops were made between there and home before being tested and self-isolated.

The Wide Bay area remains on high alert due to its proximity to Brisbane and the amount of travelers passing through it.

Previously: At least one test done at Hervey Bay in the past few days has returned positive and is currently being investigated, as the Chronicle understands.

It did so after a mammoth test across the state took 14,589 samples and only eight new cases were linked to two clusters.

There are currently 78 confirmed cases in Queensland hospitals. However, it is unclear whether any of these cases are actually treated on the Fraser Coast.

Chronicle suggests that while the person tested positive at Hervey Bay, the person moved on from the area and is being treated at Bundaberg Hospital.

The Chronicle has contacted Queensland Health for clarification, including a list of potential contact traces of concern, and is awaiting a response.

Dr. Queensland Health’s chief health officer Jeanette Young told reporters in Brisbane Tuesday that Hervey Bay, Toowoomba, Gladstone, the Gold Coast and Byron Bay in NSW remain at risk of outbreaks due to travelers.
