Queensland has recorded one new locally-acquired COVID-19 case in the last 24 hours, but health authorities say the man has already recovered and is no longer infectious. He is the brother of a 26-year-old Brisbane man who tested positive on 26 March; a friend of the landscape gardener has also tested positive. Meanwhile, there are two new cases in hotel quarantine, and a total of 71 active cases across the state. Chief Health Officer Jeannette Young is optimistic that Greater Brisbane will not have to be locked down ahead of the Easter long weekend, but says it is too soon to rule anything out. A total of seven new cases have been reported in hotel quarantine nationwide in the last 24 hours.
