Queensland records no new locally acquired cases of COVID-19 as vaccination push in regional areas steps up


Queensland has recorded no new locally acquired COVID-19 cases, but Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk wants a number of regions to pick up their lagging vaccination rates.

Ms Palaszczuk said today’s results were “unbelievable” and thanked Queenslanders for doing the “right thing”.

But the Premier once more refused to be drawn on how quickly state borders would reopen when Queensland reaches 80 per cent double vaccination target.

So far, of eligible Queenslanders, 48.89 per cent have received both vaccine doses and 67.76 per cent have received their first.
