Queensland records zero new cases of COVID-19

It’s a very happy Friday for Queensland, with the state recording zero new cases in the past 24 hours.

The state’s total number of confirmed cases now stands at 1045, however 994 of those have fully recovered.

Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk confirmed this morning that there are now 45 active cases that are being monitored across the state, with just 8 of those here on the Gold Coast.


Nine of the active cases are in hospital, with three people in intensive care.

Testing rates continue to rise, with a total of 129,195 people now being swabbed for the virus.

At least 4,308 of those tests have been undertaken in the past 24 hours alone.

It comes as Queensland prepares to relax more restrictions this weekend in time for Mother’s Day.

From Sunday, up to five members of the same household can visit another household.

“From this Mother’s Day, one family can visit another family for example, however you must stay in that house or yard for the duration of the visit,” Queensland Health’s Chief Health Officer Dr Jeannette Young said.

“You can travel outside 50km distance to visit someone’s home, but you can’t go further than 50km to visit a household and then go out into that community to go to the beach or have a picnic for example.

“If you are leaving your home for recreation, you should only go with members of your immediate household or one other person.”

The state’s death toll from the virus remains at six.
