Women Face Jail Term in Australia for Creating Coronavirus Scare

QLD Will Shut Its Borders To The Entire Metro Sydney Area Amid Rising COVID-19 Fears

QLD Will Shut Its Borders To The Entire Metro Sydney Area Amid Rising COVID-19 Fears

"We do believe, as I said, that he contracted the infection from one of his relatives who attended that restaurant in Sunnybank on 23 July, which was one of those venues that the first case who went down to Melbourne attended", Dr Young said.

Eddie said his sister and the other two women hadn't spread coronavirus deliberately.

Police have actually introduced a criminal examination into the 19- year-olds, who in between them went to 11 places in Brisbane while contaminated.

The driver was fined $4004 and denied entry to Queensland after she refused to go into hotel quarantine at her own expense.

"They're going to cost potentially the freedoms of people travelling in and out of the state obviously. But we know that if we act really fast now we can stop this spreading further and cause even more inconvenience to a lot of people".

The incident prompted Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk to announce all Sydneysiders will be banned from entering the state from Saturday.

The teens allegedly travelled on Virgin Australia flight 863 from Melbourne to Sydney, to make it appear they hadn't come from Melbourne.

Commissioner Gollschewski said he had no knowledge of an investigation into the women's alleged links to a crime syndicate.

"I'm absolutely furious that this has happened", Ms Palaszczuk said.

At that stage, however, very little was known about how and why the virus affects an infected person's sense of smell. Loss of taste and smell were added to the United Kingdom government's official list of symptoms for COVID-19 in May.

Asked whether they should face jail time if found guilty, she said: "I think that the courts will hopefully look at this very, very seriously, as is the public".

Authorities on Thursday morning revealed one of the women was not co-operating with contact tracers regarding her movements around Brisbane.

"If you have been to Victoria or one of these clusters in Sydney just be honest and take the 14-day quarantine".

"The investigation into the three women who have returned from Victoria into Queensland has obviously resulted in charges", Police Commissioner Katarina Carroll said.

Days later Ms Lasu and Ms Muranga felt sick but carried on working, socialising and visiting restaurants and cocktail bars while waiting for their test results - which came back positive. She is not accused of any wrongdoing.

"It's confusing, I do apologise", chief health officer Dr Jeannette Young said while explaining the freakish link.

Health Minister Steven Miles stated there was a big quantity of contact tracing that required to be finished with the neighborhood also. They will now be ordered to quarantine.

The women's actions have sparked fears of a second wave in Queensland, with a number of shopping centres, schools, restaurants and a church shut for deep cleaning.
