In Toowoomba,  a high school staff member and their family have gone into isolation, following recent contact with a person confirmed to have COVID-19.

Meanwhile, the first coronavirus patient on the Gold Coast has given a chilling insight.

"The next day I felt I'm dying - I couldn't move at all. You feel you might never get well. You might die and don't see your loved ones again."

Nationally, Peter Dutton has set his sights on highly-organised" black-market sellers.

He blames them for the panic-buying phenomenon gripping supermarkets across the nation as police crackdown on those profiteering from the crisis and urge others to dob them in.

The panic buying comes despite assurances tha Australia produces three times the food it actually needs.

In shocking business news, Qantas and Jetstar are now axing all international flights and standing down two thirds of its workforce. It's been suggested the 20,000 could get jobs stacking shelves.

More than 160 aircraft will be grounded including all of its big A380s and 747s with 60 per cent of domestic flights already cut.

One of the most chilling warnings today surrounds how long the coronavirus impact could be. One expert says it could be as long as 18 months.
