Fears of a coronavirus outbreak in Queensland as 11 police officers are forced into isolation after an infected traveller with PSYCHOSIS tried to flee their hotel 

Almost a dozen police have been ordered to isolate after they were potentially exposed to COVID-19 by an infected hotel guest who tried to flee quarantine in Brisbane.

Around 11 Queensland police officers are now in self-isolation in hotels or at home.

The returned traveller, 41, was suffering from psychosis when he tried to escape from the Rydges Hotel Southbank. 

He was taken back to the hotel and later tested positive for COVID-19 on Sunday.

Fears of new outbreak come days before Queensland reopens its borders to Sydney and Victoria.
