Queensland records 10 deaths, 4453 COVID cases



Another 10 people have died with COVID-19 in Queensland with 4453 new cases also recorded just days before the state’s mask mandates are scrapped.

Queensland Health said there are 316 people in hospital — up slightly from Monday’s 311 — with 26 in intensive care, an increase of one in the past 24 hours.

The death toll stands at 540, with 30,217 active cases in the state.

The latest figures show 92.80 per cent of eligible Queenslanders have had one vaccine dose, while 90.86 per cent have had two.

It comes as the state prepares to lift mask mandates in most indoor settings and density limits at most venues from 6pm on Friday.

Masks will still be mandatory on public transport and in airports, hospitals, disability care, aged care and prisons.

Density limits will be scrapped for private homes, weddings and funerals and there will be no limits in food courts, hairdressers, gyms, private venues and universities.

A ban on school excursions, assemblies and interschool visits will also be ditched.
