It was normally two days, but a flight to Chicago had been added after L.A.

Mr Turner said he expects Queensland and other parts of the country to have a tougher time acclimatising with the rest of the world.
'NSW has nothing to lose,' the chief executive said.
'They've got the infection. It doesn't matter that they bring in more.'
