Wednesday, April 22, 2020

Today, Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk along with Minister for Health and Ambulance Services Steven Miles and Queensland’s Chief Health Officer Dr Jeannette Young announced the launch of a new Queensland COVID-19 data website.

The Premier said the website would breakdown regional data by Local Government Area, giving communities more oversight of their local cases.

“This website will be the single source of truth for all Queensland COVID-19 data drawn from across the state,” the Premier said.

“We know the COVID-19 situation is changing daily which is why we prioritised building this data site to keep Queenslanders informed.

“The page will be updated daily, seven days a week, at approximately midday.

“It will include information about:

  • Total Queensland cases
  • Total samples tested
  • New COVID-19 cases recorded in Queensland over the last 24 hours
  • Active cases
  • Recovered cases
  • Age and gender of confirmed cases
  • Cases by Local Government Area and source of infection
  • COVID-10 mapping and cumulative graphs
  • Self-quarantine statistics

Minister for Health and Ambulance Services Steven Miles thanked every single Queenslander for playing their part and following the health advice.

“The people of Queensland have responded significantly to the challenge of COVID-19,” Minister Miles said.

“They have followed the health advice which has directly impacted the ability and success of Queensland flattening the curve.

“Here in Queensland our response to COVID-19 has put us in a better position than many countries around the world.

“We have some of the highest testing rates in the world and have been recording data since day one.

“This website demonstrates the Palaszczuk Government's commitment to transparency, ensuring Queenslanders have streamlined access to the latest pandemic health data.”
