Statement by LNP Shadow Health Minister Ros Bates on Interstate COVID-19 clusters

Published:

“As the number of new COVID-19 cases continue to rise in New South Wales and Victoria, I’ve asked for a briefing from Queensland’s Chief Health Officer Dr Jeannette Young, as matter of urgency.

“State Premiers across the country have again closed their borders to New South Wales and Victoria and I believe Queenslanders should be given as much notice as possible if the Palaszczuk Government takes the same course of action.

“The Palaszczuk Government must ensure adequate testing facilities including in my electorate of Mudgeeraba, after traces of COVID-19 was detected in the Merrimac wastewater treatment plant yesterday.

“Queenslanders are being encouraged to get tested if they have symptoms, but as we’ve seen in the past couple of weeks long queues have seen people walk away in droves.

“Labor must immediately work towards introducing more COVID testing facilities which don’t require a referral from a doctor, in a bid to reduce wait times.

“We can’t afford one person who may have the virus to avoid getting tested.”
