    Qld COVID-19 – Tue Apr 28: No new cases / plan a flu shot / economic path

    The number of active COVID-19 cases in Queensland is below 100, with no new cases confirmed and the number of tests now more than 100,000.

    There are now 93 active cases, 934 recovered and six deaths for a total of 1033.

    Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the figures were a credit to Queenslanders’ hard work.

    “So congratulations we’re definitely flattening that curve. This is really encouraging news and Queenslanders are doing this,” Ms Palaszczuk said.

    The Premier and the Health Minister had flu shots and encouraged everyone to book a vaccination when they can.

    The Chief Health Officer said social distancing meant flu numbers had been low so far but people should plan to get vaccinated ahead of the peak season from June to September. 

    Also today:

    • The Premier said a taskforce of health and economic experts across Government was looking at a staged approach to opening up the economy.

    “We have a clear path to recovery and I’ll be sharing that once we have that final advice, but it really depends on the epidemiology over the next couple of weeks,” Ms Palaszczuk said.

    • $33.8 million in land rent has been waived for farmers, tourism and clubs.

    More than 6000 farmers, businesses, tourism operators, and community and sports clubs, won’t have to pay state land rent for six months to protect Queensland businesses and jobs. 

    • Seqwater and Sunwater dams and recreation areas will open for day use from Saturday.
