In the last two days, two new cases of locally acquired COVID have been detected in Brisbane.
Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk will address the media at 11.15am AEDT on Sunday morning. You can see the live stream in the video player below as soon as it’s available.
Authorities have expanded the list of exposure sites visited by the two friends including pubs, restaurants and a shopping centre.
The new cases have prompted states and territories to alter their border restrictions with Queensland, with WA now enforcing 14 days quarantine for any arrivals from the Sunshine state.
Health authorities are now scrambling to track down all contacts of the two cases, amid fresh concerns about the outbreak growing.
Queensland Health revealed on Saturday night one of the men, aged 26, held a house party despite instructions to self-isolate.
About 25 guests attended the Strathpine gathering and all have been ordered into quarantine and are being tested.
