No new local cases in VIC; Sydney wakes to fog; Thousands without power in Victoria after storm; Brisbane preferred choice for Olympics; Scott Morrison says work underway to establish Singapore travel bubble

Queensland has recorded no new COVID-19 cases, easing concerns about new local infections after a couple who travelled from Victoria to the Sunshine State tested positive earlier this week.

Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the figures were good news and praised the 6000 people who had come forward for testing as well as the 11,000 vaccinations recorded over the past 24 hours.

The couple, who drove from locked down Greater Melbourne to Queensland’s Sunshine Coast via NSW, is believed to be at the end of their infectious period.

Investigations are underway to determine if the couple were infected at the Craigieburn Central shopping centre in Victoria on May 23.

The exact source of infection is still unknown.
