Queensland Health puts 99 suburbs on alert over COVID detection in sewage




Hundreds of Brisbane residents have been put on alert after the fragments of COVID were detected in wastewater.

Two separate wastewater treatment plants – Luggage Point and Victoria Point – tested positive for the virus, Queensland Health said on Thursday.

The catchments service 99 suburbs in the Metro North region of Brisbane, as well as some inner-city suburbs on the southside.

Chief Health Officer Dr Jeanette Young said anyone with symptoms, no matter how mild, should come forward for testing.

“Symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, fatigue, diarrhoea, nausea or vomiting, and loss of taste or smell,” Young said.
