House party violates Qld isolation orders triggering major contact tracing effort

A major contact tracing effort is underway after a new COVID-19 case was detected in Queensland.

The infected person is a friend of a man who tested positive with the UK strain on Thursday.

He violated isolation orders by hosting a gathering of around 25 people at home while waiting for his test result.

The partygoers have been placed in quarantine and Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk is calling on the Federal government to halve international arrivals.
