  2. The quick lockdown was caused by two separate incidents, although both involving the PA Hospital in Brisbane.

    First: Eight cases were linked to a returned traveller from Europe that was detected during hotel quarantine, and which spread to a second guest also in that hotel quarantine.
    After hospitalisation, it then spread to a PA hospital doctor, and then to a further 5 people.

    Second:
    Twelve cases were linked to a returned traveller from India that was detected during hotel quarantine.
    After hospitalisation, it then spread to a PA hospital nurse, and then to a further 10 people.

    The lockdown was enacted to give the contact tracers time to work out how much community transmission there had been.

    Fortunately there was minimal community transmission, and the lockdown was lifted early, rather than being extended.

    Queensland’s Health Minister Yvette D’Ath is quoted as saying:

    “The good news is that the lockdown has served its purpose in that the people we were tracing had been able to be quarantined before they were infectious, which is exactly the purpose in which we sought to have the lockdown”

  3. The lockdown was lifted, for most situations, at 12 Noon on Thursday 1st April 2021.

    Hospitals were still in lockdown as at 5pm Thursday 1st April.

    However, people in ALL of Queensland MUST wear masks for another 2 weeks, until 15 April.
