Thursday was another good day for Queensland's response to COVID-19 with just five new cases recorded/
There are now 554 active cases with 442 recoveries and five deaths for a total of 1001.
The Chief Health Officer said the latest COVID-19 case numbers were excellent news, but they will get worse when more people return from overseas.
New: 5 Total: 1001 Deaths: 5 Recovered: 442 Active: 554 Tests: 77,727
Local transmission: 39 From interstate: 18
Most cases are patients who went overseas or contacted a patient who went overseas.
There remains no cases in the North West Hospital and Health Service region, nor are there any in Central West or South West regions.
It has been a brilliant effort to flatten the curve as the experts demanded of us, though depressingly I've seen reports of "over-reaction" and "scamdemic" from those who do not or deliberately choose not to understand that this outcome is no accident and we absolutely have not over-reacted.
Meanwhile a new online portal will connect Queenslanders with new job opportunities and training during the COVID-19 pandemic.
As part of the Government's $4 billion COVID-19 support package, the Treasurer said Queenslanders looking for work can upload information on their skills and work experience to jobsfinder.qld.gov.au, to be matched to available jobs and free online training courses.
The government also assured landlords and tenants it will work with them on temporary COVID-19 rental measures.
The Housing Minister said guidelines would be worked through with tenants, property managers and owners before Parliament considers the package.
The government also said cafes and restaurants deserve a fair go from delivery services during the pandemic.
The Small Business Minister announced a meeting of stakeholders to address delivery fees.
