30 January 2020
Please attribute the below to Dr Jeannette Young, Chief Health Officer:
There has been a second novel coronavirus case confirmed in Queensland.
A 42 year old woman, a Chinese national from Wuhan (Hubei Province), has been confirmed to have novel coronavirus.
The woman was a member of the tour group travelling with the 44 year old man confirmed with coronavirus on 29 January 2020.
The woman is currently isolated in the Gold Coast University Hospital (GCUH), and is stable.
Contact tracing is underway, which will allow us to provide information to guests of the hotel this group was staying in, and to other passengers on Tigerair flight #TT566 from Melbourne to the Gold Coast on 27 January 2020. Any passengers who were on this flight should call 13HEALTH for advice.
The seven other people from the same tour group remain in isolation in GCUH.
Further information will be provided by the Chief Health Officer in a press conference tomorrow.
