Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk is proving a COVID-19 update as new mystery cases emerge in the state. 

Two new community cases were announced on Friday. 

“They are linked, which is good news. Both in home quarantine, so not at risk,” Ms Palaszczuk said.

“But we are still concerned about the Gold Coast. The two cases we have on the Gold Coast, they are clustering together

“We do need to find out that link and we do need to make sure that people are getting tested and getting vaccinated.” 

Ms Palaszczuk announced on Thursday a second unlinked case had been identified on the Gold Coast.

She warned restrictions could be imposed on the Gold Coast if further infections emerge.  

“If we see more unlinked community transmission on the Gold Coast in the next 24 to 48 hours, we may have to put in place some further restrictions,” she said. 

More to come.
