CHO issues mask mandate warning after Queensland records seven more COVID deaths

Queensland has recorded another seven COVID-19 deaths and 5,440 new cases in the latest reporting period.

Health authorities said of the 333 people who were in the state’s public hospitals, 27 were in intensive care.

Six of those who died were in aged care and all were aged over 60.

Chief Health Officer John Gerrard said today marked one month since Queensland reached its hospitalisation peak.

“On January 25th, Queensland had 928 people with COVID-19 in hospital, including 51 in intensive care,” he said.

“Today there are just 333 in our public hospitals, 27 of whom are in intensive care.”

A further 17 people were in private hospitals with the virus, of which, three were in intensive care.

Dr Gerrard said the number of new cases in school-aged children had decreased for the second day in a row.

There were 1,396 new cases in children aged between five and 17, down from 1,924 yesterday.

“These numbers will fluctuate daily but the main thing is we are not seeing a substantial surge in school-aged children,” Dr Gerrard said.
