Brissie back into lockdown

It’s Snap 3-Day Lockdown – The Sequel for Greater Brisbane after 4 new locally acquired coronavirus cases were recorded yesterday, bringing the total number of new cases since late last week to 7. Two are colleagues of a 26yo bloke who tested positive last week. The others are a nurse who worked on a COVID ward and her sister who visited tourist hotspot Byron Bay while unknowingly contagious last week. Cue concern from NSW officials… Queensland Premier Annastacia Palszczuk yesterday said the lockdown was necessary to get on top of contact tracing and to break the viral transmission chain if that’s happening. The restrictions will be reviewed on Wednesday night, but it’s already led many to ditch Easter holiday plans with some states and the ACT/Top End imposing border and travel restrictions.
