Another 35 deaths have been added to Queensland’s official COVID-19 death toll, in the latest figures released by Queensland Health on Friday morning.
The figures – which record the number of people who had tested positive to COVID-19 around the time of their death – were recorded between midnight on January 24 and midnight on January 31.
As of Tuesday, there were 226 people being treated for COVID-19 in Queensland hospitals, including 18 in intensive care units.
The latest deaths take Queensland’s toll since the pandemic began to 2677.
All but seven of these deaths have occurred since the Omicron wave began and restrictions started being eased.
Queensland’s current COVID-19 health alert status is “Green”.
This means Queensland Health has determined there are low rates of community transmission and Queensland is not in a COVID-19 wave.
