Queensland Health has advised that a 77-year-old man has died of COVID-19 complications in intensive care at a hospital near Brisbane. The man had been flown from Papua New Guinea to Redcliffe Hospital on 28 March after his condition deteriorated. It is the first COVID-19 death in Queensland since early April 2020; however, the man will not be included in the state’s official death toll as he had been diagnosed in PNG, and he had dual citizenship of PNG and the UK. Queensland has recorded no new COVID-19 cases in the last 24 hours, and there are 70 active cases in the state.
