Genome sequencing confirms link
Authorities have identified two distinct clusters.
One stems from a PA doctor who contracted the virus from a returned traveller in early March.
The second is linked to a nurse at the same hospital who is likely to have caught the virus from a returned traveller, from India, while on an overnight shift on March 23.
Dr Young said genome sequencing on one of the latest cases was linked to the PA hospital nurse cluster. Eleven people are now part of that cluster.
"It is exactly the same as the genome sequences for that second cluster, related to the nurse and her friends who were in that party, who went down to Byron Bay," she said.
Chrissy Teigen: I want my son to embrace his emotional side
Chrissy Teigen is teaching her son to “embrace” his emotional side, because she doesn't want to teach him any damaging stereotypes when it comes to gender.The 35-year-old model has said her son Miles, two, is already a very “emotional” child, and Chrissy and her husband John Legend – with whom she also has four-year-old daughter Luna – are trying to make sure he understands it’s “okay” to be open about his emotions.
Eleven people were at the party in Byron Bay, 10 guests and.
The man and six of the guests have tested positive, and the other four guests have tested negative, but are in quarantine and will continue to be tested.
Work is underway to determine how the nurse contracted the virus.
It is understood that she did not work directly with the case from India, but started a night shift less than two hours after that case had been admitted on March 23.
Dr Young said the nurse was tested as part of asymptomatic screening for the ward, but she had since developed symptoms.
"We just need to work out how she got it on that ward," Dr Young said.
"There is most likely some environmental contamination or some aerosolisation of the virus when the person was admitted.
"So that's why that ward has been closed. No-one is going in or out of that ward."
The nurse had been given the first dose of the vaccine on March 19.
"Remembering she's only had the first dose, so it usually takes a week after your first dose before you get a significant degree of immunity," Dr Young said.
"Then you need to have a second dose of the Pfizer vaccine three weeks later, and it takes another week after that."
From 8:00pm only vaccinated staff will be caring for COVID-19 patients in Queensland hospitals.
Two of the positive community cases are in the Gold Coast University hospital.
There is also one person in the Bundaberg hospital who has COVID-19 and another in the Toowoomba hospital. Neither have been out in the community.
There was one new case of COVID-19 in hotel quarantine overnight, taking the active cases in the state to 71 — 58 of those have been acquired overseas.
Dozens of contact tracing alerts have been issued with locations spread.
