COVID-19: One case detected in West Moreton today
ONE more coronavirus case has been confirmed in the West Moreton region this afternoon, taking the area’s total to 37.
After a massive spike at the weekend, the region’s total has been growing at a decreasing rate.
The age and sex of the patient is unknown as is the specific town the patient lives in.
Because the West Moreton health region covers Gatton, Laidley, Esk, Boonah and Ipswich hospitals, it is possible the new patient is from the Lockyer Valley or Somerset regions.

Of the 36 cases, Queensland Health has confirmed the first two patients, confirmed on March 14 and 15, were a 51-year-old man and a 22-year-old woman.
