“There are now 926 Queenslanders who have had the virus and recovered, meaning we have just 98 active cases here in the State right now.”
Of those, there are currently 18 people in hospital.
Six are in intensive care, while the remainder of active cases are recovering at home.
There were just three new cases in Queensland in the past 24 hours, raising the state total to a revised 1030.
Of the 1030 people to have tested positive, 964 had recently travelled overseas or had close contact with a confirmed case, such as their partner or flatmate.
A total of 98,422 tests for COVID-19 have also been undertaken in Queensland, with 1,364 tests done in the past 24 hours alone.
Six Queenslanders have died from the virus, while the national toll has risen to 83 this morning after two more people died.
A Victorian and Tasmanian man, both aged in their nineties, passed away overnight.
