A New Covid Scare: Girl, Four-year-old, Contracted Coronavirus in Queensland

A new outbreak from Queensland where a girl aged four has contracted Coronavirus from a truck driver who is also positive of Covid-19.

The 46-year-old truck driver from Logan is infected with the virus and has close contact with a four-year-old girl. This news prompted an outbreak in Sunshine State earlier this week.

On Friday afternoon, the girl’s result returned positive, and no new cases were reported after that. The staff and visitors of The Boulevard Early Learning Centre at Mt.

Warren, where the girl attends her school and other children, have insisted on being home quarantined for fourteen days and immediately getting tested with the virus.

Moreover, the facility is also used as school care for children from Windaroo State School.

According to a report, it is believed that the truck driver has been carrying the virus since the 27th of August. Before he tested positive for Covid-19, he had visited Queensland from Sydney and went back to NSW.

Furthermore, people are urged by Queensland Health to be part of the vaccination program. They stressed that the best approach to get protection from a severe case of Covid, which is the most critical step in fighting the virus, is through a vaccine.
