COVID-19 infections slowing down in Logan

COVID-19 infections have risen again in Logan in the last 24 hours but not as much as yesterday. 

According to Queensland Health 11,401 people now have the virus which is a jump overnight of 846 infections.

47 contracted it from overseas, 37 locally from someone they know, 16 from someone they don’t know, 12 from interstate and 11,289 are mystery cases. 

COVID-19 cases have also risen in the Scenic Rim by another 9 overnight.

In that Local Government area 464  people are infected with the virus – a jump overnight of nine. Four got it whilst overseas, the same number became infected from a person they know and three people got it from a stranger.

Queensland Health is trying to establish how 453 other people became infected.

The state has now recorded 19,709 COVID-19 cases overnight and sadly six more deaths.

A person aged in their 20’s was among those who died.

More than 640 COVID-19 patients are now being treated in hospitals across the state, with 46 in intensive care.

As the Queensland’s hospitals and paramedics come under intense pressure amid the Omicron wave the chief health officer has told Queenslanders there’s one COVID-19 symptom that means it could be an emergency.

Dr John Gerard says don’t call an ambulance unless walking from room to room in your house feels like climbing a steep hill.
