A woman who fled Melbourne with her husband and went on a 1900 kilometre road trip before testing positive to coronavirus has come under heavy fire from Karl Stefanovic.

Health authorities in Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland are scrambling to  track down hundreds of people who may have been potentially exposed to the virus during their road trip across three states.

The woman, 44, tested positive on Wednesday but may have been infectious from the day she left Melbourne on June 1, which was already in lockdown.

Police believe the couple crossed the NSW-Queensland border at the remote rural town of Goondiwindi on June 5 in a bid to evade authorities.

Karl-Heinz Rummenigge brings forward Bayern Munich departure date

  Karl-Heinz Rummenigge brings forward Bayern Munich departure date Rummenigge, who has been a Bayern executive for 30 years, was originally going to stay in post until December 31 with Kahn then replacing him. But he has now decided a summer transfer of power would be easier to clarify decision-making ahead of next season.'It is the most strategically sensible and logical time,' said Rummenigge. 'We're coming to the end of the financial year, and at the same time a new phase is beginning with a new coaching team.

There are also reports the woman lied on her declaration form when entering Queensland, sparking public outrage.

A furious Stefanovic called for the border hopping couple to be not only be named and shamed but also have 'the book thrown at them.

'I think there is understandable anger across regional Victoria, into regional NSW and then into some of those regional parts of Queensland as well particularly, because they have done such a great job protecting themselves against COVID,' the Today show co-host fumed on Thursday morning.

'A lot of people are furious. They have to throw the book at these people. They have to. I'm not averse to naming and shaming. We have to get this message through.'

While co-host Allison Langdon agreed the book should be thrown at the border hoppers and fines issued, she doesn't believe they should be named or shamed.

Jasmine Stefanovic steps out in boots from her own label

  Jasmine Stefanovic steps out in boots from her own label The wife of Today host Karl Stefanovic looked suitably chic in a high-neck, off-white midi dress. Over her shoulders, the 37-year-old slipped a camel-coloured coat and she clutched a Chloe purse in one hand.Jasmine pulled back her blonde hair, drawing attention to her youthful visage and accessorised with ornate gold drop earrings. The glammed-up outing followed a low-key playdate with fellow mum and her husband's occasional Today co-star Sylvia Jeffries.

'My initial reaction is I want to know who they are, they've done the wrong thing but if you do that, you don't have people coming forward and don't have people getting tested,' she argued.

Stefanovic continued his furious rant.

'They are going to get named if they're charged,' he replied.

'How do you not get it? How do you not get that message through and maybe embarrassment is a way of doing it.'

Stefanovic felt for residents in the regional towns the couple had driven through.

'You'd be filthy if you lived in the country and these people had driven your town, wouldn't you,' he said shortly afterwards.

3AW breakfast radio presenter Neil Mitchell agreed the book should be thrown at the couple.

'It's sheer stupidity,' he told the program.

Stefanovic added: 'How does the message not get through? It puts enormous stress on people who are now waiting for tests and enormous stress on businesses.'

Jasmine Yarbrough is denied entry at Australian Fashion Week

  Jasmine Yarbrough is denied entry at Australian Fashion Week Jasmine Stefanovic (née Yarbrough) was left red-faced after being turned away from a show at Afterpay Australian Fashion Week in Sydney on Thursday. The 37-year-old shoe designer and wife of Today host Karl Stefanovic was denied entry by security after arriving late for the Indigenous Fashion Projects show.Jasmine was spotted trying to negotiate with the security guard as she stood at the door in the rain alongside a female friend.At one stage, the burly guard gestured towards what was taking place behind the door as a desperate Jasmine briefly checked her phone.

'Let's just hope they've (the couple) got a good excuse.'

Stefanovic had weighed into the debate following an interview with Queensland-based Royal Australian College of General Practitioners vice president Dr Bruce Willett.

He said the latest case has put Queensland on high alert.

'I think there's a lot of anger and disappointment really that people would do this. People's lives are at stake and also people's livelihoods with shutdowns,' Dr Willett told the program.

'I think it's a wait and see game. I think we have to keep our fingers crossed that there are no more cases in the near future and we avoid the lockdown.

'I think the important lesson from this is this can happen anywhere, anytime.'

Dr Willett added Queenslanders would like to the couple to be charged.

The couple, who left a suburb on the edge of greater Melbourne on June 1, likely drove the scenic route so they could avoid passing through the Gold Coast - where police perform 100 random intercepts a day and have stricter border control measures in place.

The Australian celebrities who got the COVID vaccine

  The Australian celebrities who got the COVID vaccine The Australian vaccine rollout hasn't been the best in the world, but more and more Australian's are doing their best to protect our society by getting their Covid vaccination. Here are your favourite celebrities that have gotten their vaccination. The Covid vaccine rollout that began in late February hasn't been smooth in Australia. Luckily, operations have started to improve, and more people are doing their due diligence by getting their jab. It has been one of the biggest logistical processes the country has ever seen, and it's also free to all Australian citizens.

It's understood the woman broke lockdown to visit her family in Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast.

She had been experiencing symptoms - including loss of her sense of smell - from June 3 but only sought a test on June 8.

In an extraordinary twist, the pair were only detected when the couple came forward for testing because the husband needed negative results for work purposes.

Six close contacts of the woman have been identified so far, including her husband who has to date tested negative.

The remaining five close contacts are quarantining at a house together on the Sunshine Coast until their results come back.

Queensland's Chief Health Officer Jeannette Young fears the woman's partner could become infected, given how much time the pair spent in the car together.

Both are now at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital.

Dr Young has said it is possible the woman was infectious from the day she left Melbourne.

'She could well have been infectious while travelling through New South Wales and I have been working with my colleague to determine that,' she said on Wednesday.

Authorities are working to track down close contacts and investigate whether she and her partner broke three states' COVID rules.

Eleven venues in the four towns have been identified by NSW Health as potential exposure sites.

Anyone who attended venues must immediately get tested and isolate.

NSW Health is urging anyone who has been in any of the affected towns to monitor for symptoms and get tested.

Queensland's list of exposure sites include a McDonald's restaurant in Goondiwindi, where they crossed the border from NSW, and sites on the Sunshine Coast, including at Moffat Beach, Kings Beach, Buddina, Baringa and Caloundra.

The couple also travelled through Toowoomba, west of Brisbane. The list of exposure sites is on the Queensland Health website and will inevitably grow.

Deputy Commissioner Steve Gollschewski said Queensland Police will be investigating why the couple entered into the sunshine state.

'We've got a couple that have come from Victoria, when Victoria's in lockdown, into Queensland,' he said.

'We'll examine all those issues around passes - whether they were appropriate and what has happened - it is too early to say.

'It's really important for us to remind the whole community that we cannot possibly check every single person moving around the country.'
