Queensland bans the use of atomizers in quarantine areas
The Victorian government issued a statement stating that a confirmed man in the isolation hotel used a nebulizer without authorization.However, the man told the media that he had notified the authorities before using the atomizer.
At present, atomizers have been considered to increase the risk of COVID-19 transmission.The Queensland Department of Health issued a statement on Sunday that the equipment will be banned from being used in quarantined hotels in Queensland from now on.
"We have updated the guidelines based on the situation in Victoria. Isolation hotels in Queensland currently prohibit the use of nebulizers, except in emergencies. People who may need to continue to use nebulizers need to be evaluated by a respiratory physician and may need to be transferred to a hospital. Take care."
Dick warned on Sunday that it will take several years for Queensland to fully recover from the pandemic, but he also believes that the short-term outlook remains positive.
