A spokesman for the Pinjarra Hills residential aged care community said the two staff members last worked on July 28.

It is believed he contracted the virus when he and his family ate at Madtongsan IV Korean restaurant at Sunnybank on July 23.

The aged care worker is the third case of community transmission linked to the cluster, after one of the women's sisters tested positive earlier this week.

The women, Olivia Muranga and Diana Lasu, are being treated at the Princess Alexandra Hospital on Brisbane's southside and on Thursday were charged with deliberately giving authorities false documents in order to cross the border and fraud offences.

It comes as footage of Muranga ordering a cocktail at a Brisbane bar in the hours after she had a test for coronavirus was also aired by the show.

It was revealed on Wednesday Ms Muranga, a cleaner at Parklands Christian College in Park Ridge, west of Brisbane, did not self-isolate on her return to Logan, instead working three days at the private school before being later diagnosed with the virus.

Arif Mendes, who owns the restaurant told ACA: "People say we're in this together ... well clearly not for some people, that's disappointing".

"What is happening in Victoria could very well happen here", she said.

'What we have seen in these instances are [alleged] deliberate acts of deception, ' Queensland Deputy Police Commissioner Steve Gollschewski said.

"We are fairly comfortable that that's probably where he's got it but we will do contact tracing for him now as to who he might have come into contact with".

As the World Health Organisation warned the effects of the coronavirus pandemic would be felt for decades, another 397 cases were reported in Victoria yesterday, with three people dying.

They returned to Queensland without declaring their whereabouts to officials.
