Queensland outperforms ‘strong and rapid’ lockdown
After the state reported three new cases on Friday, Queensland could face another lockdown if more infections are reported.
While all three cases have been linked, with testing rates also rising, Prime Minister Anastasia Pallaschuk said that while a ‘strict and rapid lockdown’ is not currently necessary, she will enact one if needed.

Among those new infections, a Gold Coast man is raising new concerns from a group after it was discovered he had spent four days in the community while contracting the infection.
