There are still more than 300 people being treated for COVID-19 in Queensland hospitals.
The latest statistics, released by Queensland Health on Friday morning, show eight of the 320 patients in hospital are in intensive care units.
Another 15 people died during the latest reporting period, taking the State’s death toll since the pandemic began to 2346.
All but seven of these deaths have occurred during the Omicron wave.
A total of 11,217 new cases have been reported to authorities, a number known to be 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.
