Zero new cases of COVID-19 overnight plus testing reaches milestone

Zero new cases have been confirmed overnight as the Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk announces Queensland has passed one million tests for COVID-19.

“I want to congratulate Queenslanders who continue to step up and do their part to help us stop this virus in its tracks,” she said.

“And it wouldn’t be possible without the dedication of our frontline healthcare workers.

“The hardworking doctors, nurses, public health teams, paramedics, pathology workers, health professionals and critical support teams who help them do their jobs like cleaners and kitchen staff.”

It took almost six months to reach 500,000 tests but it only took six weeks to reach one million.

“Over 10,000 tests conducted in the past 24 hours,” Health Minister Steven Miles said.

“Thank you to everyone who has come forward and got tested.

“We couldn’t have done this without you.

“We must keep up our high levels of testing.”

Symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, runny nose, fatigue or loss of taste or smell.
