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.

  1. “Most of the people in hospital with COVID-19 were over the age of 70”.

    Well, that’s all right then, isn’t it? The government believes older folk don’t contribute anything positive to the economy. In fact, they are actually a drain on resources.

    Gen X,Y,Z & Millennials blame Boomers for getting in the way of their careers and stuffing up the housing market.

    No one wants the hassle of having to look after them. Just let them die. It makes good economic sense.

  2. Well, to all those who would like to see the Baby Boomers bumped off (so to speak), stop and think about the fact that you too will grow old, if you’re lucky!
