The cause of the outbreak is not yet known. 25 kids aged between 8 and 11 years old at the cub scout camp in the north of Brisbane were taken to hospital over the night.
Many have since been discharged and they were all tested for Covid-19 with no positive results.
The Queensland Ambulance Service confirmed it was able to transport several patients in stable condition from an “organized camp” in Landsborough around 9 pm on Tuesday.
Six ambulances were used for transporting people to Sunshine Coast University and Nambour hospitals on the Sunshine Coast and Prince Charles and Caboolture hospitals in Brisbane.
A number of children and adults remained at the campsite, while kids with symptoms were being treated.
Queensland Cuboree, which hosts more than 750 people from all over the state, has confirmed that it had partnered with Queensland Health to prioritize the well-being of children.
Sunshine Coast health clinicians environmental health personnel were sent to the camp to carry out the control of infections and evaluate campers on Wednesday morning.
Patients discharged from hospitals are now being cared for at local Scout halls, instead of being taken back to the campsite.
