Queensland has registered no new cases of COVID-19 in the community, paving the way for the NRL’s grand final tonight at Lang Park.
Only one positive case was detected in hotel quarantine of 18,427 tests.
Prime Minister Annastacia Palaszczuk said it was excellent news.
“Queenslanders have heeded our call to come out and get tested,” Ms Palaszczuk said.
“Thank you to the Queenslanders for the great work you are doing.”
So far, 66.96 percent of eligible Queensland residents have had at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, while 47.98 percent have been fully vaccinated.
“We’re not out of the woods yet so that means all residents of Queensland, if you have any symptoms, please come out and get tested,” Ms Palaszczuk said.
Chief Health Officer Jeannette Young expressed his surprise that the multiple outbreaks in the southeast of the state had not spread further.
“It’s amazing we haven’t seen community seeding, and that’s because of the work being done by Queenslanders every day,” said Dr. young.
“You clearly know how to respond in a pandemic.”
More to come.
