Millions of Queensland residents in 11 local government areas (LGA) have been forced into a snap three-day lockdown after six new locally acquired cases of the CCP virus were confirmed in the Australian state. “We must go hard and go fast,” QLD Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said in a statement on Saturday. “I know this will impact on many families but there is no alternative.” The snap lockdown begins at 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 31, and encompasses Brisbane, Ipswich, Logan City, Moreton Bay, Redlands, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Noosa, Somerset, Lockyer Valley, and Scenic Rim.
