There are now more than 300 people being treated for COVID-19 in Queensland hospitals, up from 245 last week.
The latest statistics were released by Queensland Health on Friday morning.
Eight of the 312 patients in hospital are in intensive care units.
Queensland Chief Health Officer Dr John Gerrard said most of the people in hospital with COVID-19 were over the age of 70.
Another 14 people died during the latest reporting period, taking the State’s death toll since the pandemic began to 2331.
A total of 10,082 new cases have been reported to authorities, a number which experts have said is under-estimated.
Queensland’s current COVID Alert status remains at “Amber”.
The “Amber” level means people have been requested to wear a face mask in healthcare settings; indoors when they cannot socially distance; on public transport; if they are older, immunocompromised or have other health issues; or if they are around people who are vulnerable to COVID-19.
