Queensland Covid update: nine of 16 new cases are children, 400 health workers in quarantine – video | Australia news

Deputy Queensland premier Steven Miles and chief health officer Jeannette Young give an update on the state’s Covid-19 outbreak. Nine of the cases confirmed on Tuesday are in school students and five are in their household family members, which may also include children. Young urges people to stay at home, saying, ‘We know that there are people out there who could have been infected who have no symptoms, so the best way to deal with someone who has no symptoms is that they just stay at home. That’s why lockdowns work. We know the virus can burn out.’ More than 400 of the state’s health workers are in quarantine, including all of cardiac surgeons for the children’s hospital.
