A Queensland woman is accused of placing fake QR code signs in a country pub that linked patrons to an anti-vaccination website when they attempted a Covid check-in.
Fake QR codes were allegedly setup within the rural venue in Wondai at South Burnett, Queensland, and as customers tried to register they were diverted from the Queensland Covid Check-in, to a right-wing, anti-vaccination site.
Queensland police confirmed a 43-year-old woman was charged, with a spokesperson alleging she entered the premises on May 16, setting up the fake QR codes around the venue.

The woman has been charged with a number of offences including one count each of common nuisance, possessing dangerous drugs and possessing drug utensils.
She is due to appear in Murgon Magistrates Court on June 29.
