Saw this in my facebook feed yesterday.  Can anyone from Aus comment? Scary.

UK variant - in Brisbane we have had an incident where the UK variant spread to 6 other people on the same floor of a quarantine hotel. 

Genomic analysis confirms direct spread - all these ppl have the same source of infection despite never being in the same room. All arrived from different countries and tested negative on arrival in Australia. 

All acquired the UK variant while locked in their hotel rooms in quarantine. CCTV footage confirms no breach of protocol around PPE etc, no common contact between cases. 

Investigation is underway but this implies airborne transmission via air conditioning and that this new variant is incredibly aerosolised. 

FYI.

Kilt5, I haven’t seen anything about Thailand — I’m trying to keep abreast of all these mutations which are spontaneously occurring within a similar timeframe. Do you happen to have the source you saw the Thailand news in? I’d be grateful.
