Brisbane lockdown extension not ruled out after day of ‘encouraging’ news
Brisbane is well-placed to lift its lockdown in time for Easter – but it’s too soon to commit, Queensland’s health chief says.
There were two new coronavirus cases reported in Queensland on Wednesday, both of which were linked to known outbreaks.

Chief Health Officer Jeannette Young said it was “encouraging” but it was only one day of positive news.
“We need to get more results from today, so it is absolutely extremely important that anyone with any symptoms gets tested,” she said.
“So that if there’s any other chains of transmission, we pick them up immediately and then we’ll get the results tomorrow morning and we’ll be able to then make a decision.”
