Bris­bane: Queensland will close its bor­der to all of New South Wales and the ACT from 1am on Satur­day. It comes as the state recorded one new case of coro­n­avirus overnight. The 68-year-old Queensland woman was di­ag­nosed with the virus in the past 24 hours and au­thor­i­ties are still in­ves­ti­gat­ing the source of the in­fec­tion. Two his­toric cases have also been added to the state’s to­tal of 1088 cases.

The hotspot dec­la­ra­tion means any­one trav­el­ling from NSW or the na­tion’s cap­i­tal will soon be banned from en­ter­ing the Sun­shine State.
