Today, Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk announced the launch of a new Queensland COVID-19 data website.
According to the Premier, the new website will breakdown regional data by Local Government Areas, giving local towns more oversight of their local cases.
“This website will be the single source of truth for all Queensland COVID-19 data drawn from across the state,” the Premier said.
“We know the COVID-19 situation is changing daily which is why we prioritised building this data site to keep Queenslanders informed,
“The page will be updated daily, seven days a week, at around midday.”
The website will include information about:
- Total Queensland cases
- Total samples tested
- New COVID-19 cases recorded in Queenslander over the last 24 hours
- Active cases
- Recovered cases
- Age and gender of confirmed cases
- Cases by Local Government Area and source of infection
- COVID-10 mapping and cumulative graphs
- Self-quarantine statistics
The website comes after local MP Shane Knuth wrote an open letter to the Minister for Health and Ambulance Services Steven Miles asking for more information and transparency from CHHHS and Queensland Health, specifically the breakdown of COVID-19 in Local Government Areas.
The data can be found at health.qld.gov.au/covid-data
