Queensland has a new coronavirus case after a COVID-positive crewman on board a bulk carrier off the Sunshine Coast was taken to hospital.
And there could be more, with another 18 crew believed to be on board the Panamanian-registered vessel.
It’s understood the man, aged in his 20s, was brought ashore from the ship called the Hokkaido with the help of water police on Sunday.
He was taken to Sunshine Coast University Hospital for quarantine.
Queensland now has two active cases.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the State Government was notified of the case at the weekend, with health authorities visiting the ship to conduct the testing.
“We’re not concerned about it, it is a person who was tested positive on a cargo vessel,” the Premier said.
“They’re now in hospital, and they are completely secure, so we have absolutely no concerns about that.”
Authorities are now monitoring the vessel.
