Three AIDS cases suspected in Queensland

The Australian, 1 July 1983:

THREE suspected cases of acquired immune deficiency syndrome have been found in Queensland where AIDS was yesterday made a notifiable disease.

The victims were all male homosexuals who had visited the United States, the State Minister for Health, Mr Austin, said yesterday. He said the men had only been diagnosed as suspected AIDS victims after a State co-ordinating committee was formed this week.

Queensland is the only State to make AIDS a notifiable disease, but the Federal Minister for Health, Dr Blewett, has asked State governments to keep him informed on developments.
