Queensland Health statistics show the total number of COVID-19 cases recorded in the Cherbourg and South Burnett council areas since December 29 is now 52.

These figures cover the period to 7:00pm on January 1 but there is no further information about where each is located. However, it has been previously stated there are cases in Murgon, Kingaroy and Nanango as well as Cherbourg.

Chief Health Officer Dr John Gerrard confirmed on Sunday morning the cluster linked to Cherbourg has grown to 38, but there was still just one person in hospital for isolation purposes.

Across Queensland, 170 people are in hospital, including five people in intensive care.

Two of the ICU patients are pregnant women.

The total number of active COVID-19 cases across Queensland is now 16,688, after the State recorded 3587 new cases between 7:00pm on December 31 and 7:00pm on January 1.

southburnett.com.au has been keeping track of some basic statistics for local Council areas since the re-opening of the State border on December 13.

These statistics, from Queensland Health, show the total number of confirmed positive cases per Local Government Area since the pandemic began in January 2020.

They are NOT the total of current ACTIVE cases but demonstrate how the virus has spread quickly throughout the local community.

We took snapshots on Dec 13, Dec 21, Dec 29, Dec 30, Dec 31, Jan 1 and Jan 2:

  • South Burnett: 3 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 18 / 21 / 25
  • Cherbourg:  – / – / – / 3 / 12 / 21 / 30

NB. Data is reported by Queensland Health daily but can vary over time due to case reviews. When we took the first snapshots, Cherbourg LGA had not been added to the list by Qld Health as no cases had been recorded there. From December 31, data is current to 7:00pm the previous day.
