Queensland Health has unveiled a new web page which provides COVID-19 data sorted by Council area as well as Health Region.
For example, the website shows there has been two confirmed cases in the South Burnett Regional Council area (ie. the two recovered cases in Kingaroy, previously reported).
However, the new data shows one of these patients acquired the infection overseas while the other acquired it interstate.
In the Gympie Regional Council area, there have been four confirmed cases: two acquired overseas and two acquired locally from a known contact.
In the North Burnett, there has been one confirmed case, with the virus acquired overseas.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the website gives 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.”
The website includes information about:
- Total Queensland cases
- Total samples tested
- New COVID-19 cases recorded in Queenslander 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
Footnote: For the second time this week, there has been no new confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Queensland. There are still 15 active cases in the Darling Downs Health region.
