“Since the start of the month when we went to stage two easing of restrictions we’ve had just eight new cases, six of them came from overseas and two from other states, so we’ve had no locally acquired cases all month.”

Just two of those cases remain active, both of those on the Gold Coast.

One person remains in hospital while the second is in isolation at home.

More than 334,000 tests have now been carried out across Queensland since the beginning out of the outbreak.

A total of 5885 tests were carried out in the last 24 hours.
