QuoteQueensland has recorded 11,600 new Covid cases in the past 24 hours, while 15 people have died, Health Minister Yvette D'Ath has announced.

Chief health officer Dr John Gerrard said that of the people who had died there were two people in their 60s, nine in their 80s and four in their 90s.

Four were unvaccinated, four had received one dose, five had received two doses and two had received a booster.

Mr Gerrard said that there are now only 829 people in state public hospitals which was a "significant fall" from previous weeks.

"Most of that fall has been on the Gold Coast as expected. Gold Coast had its peak and it's on its way down," Dr Gerrard said.

There are now more than 69,000 active cases in the state while 48 people are in intensive care with 15 on ventilators.

NEW - Queensland has sadly recorded another 18 COVID-19 deaths overnight - including an unvaccinated person in their 30s - and there were 9974 new infections including 3960 RATs.

Premier @AnnastaciaMP has released Cabinet COVID modelling showing QLD's health authorities were expecting a worst-case scenario of 5000 beds needed for virus treatment in public hospitals. The most likely scenario was more than 3000. As it stands, under 1000 beds have been used.

CHO Dr John Gerrard clarifies that of today's 18 deaths, 1 was aged in their 30s, 4 in their 60s, 4 in their 70s, 7 in their 80s and 2 in their 90s. Of the 18, 6 were unvaccinated, 9 were double jabbed and 3 had boosters.

Another 12 people in Queensland die from COVID-19 and 10,391 new cases are confirmed in the latest reporting period, with a third of the deaths being people who were unvaccinated.

Chief Health Officer John Gerrard said four of the people who died in the past 24 hours were unvaccinated and none had received a booster shot.

There are now 833 people in hospital with the virus, up slightly from yesterday, and 53 of those patients are in intensive care units.

Dr Gerrard said six of the people who died were in their 80s, three were in their 90s, two were in their 70s and one was in their 60s.

"These are all people who have died who have had a recently positive COVID-19 test," Dr Gerrard said.

Two had received a single dose of a COVID vaccine, five had received two doses and none had received a booster.

COVID-safe back to school plan
30th January 2022

JOINT STATEMENT

Premier and Minister for the Olympics
The Honourable Annastacia Palaszczuk

Minister for Education, Minister for Industrial Relations and Minister for Racing
The Honourable Grace Grace

New measures will be implemented across Queensland to help students, teachers and staff return to schools on February 7.

Masks will be required for all staff and high school students – and highly encouraged for most primary school students – when classes resume.

Rapid Antigen Tests (RATs) will also be available to students and staff who develop symptoms while at school, while those who develop symptoms at home will have priority access to RATs at Queensland Health clinics.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the resumption of school will be safer thanks to the delayed start of term, which has also allowed time for more students to get vaccinated.

"As always, we have acted on the health advice and had a cautious and measured approach through the pandemic," the Premier said.

"As always, that advice has kept Queenslanders safe."

Key features of the Back to School plan include:

Mask wearing for all high school students and staff in line with the existing mandate
Masks available and strongly encouraged for students in Years 3 to 6
A range of ventilation measures including air purifiers as required
Temporary measures for the first four weeks of term include:

RATs available in school for students and staff who develop symptoms while on site
Priority access to RATs for students and staff at Queensland Health clinics
RATs provided to staff entering remote communities
Suspension of school camps, excursions, assemblies, and large gatherings
Limiting of visitors on school sites, with exceptions for parents and carers of students experiencing vulnerability, and all students attending Early Childhood Development Programs, Kindergarten, Prep or Year 1
Staggered drop off times and special drop off zones
Education Minister Grace Grace said as well as delaying the start of term by two weeks, there are a number of measures already in place to keep students and staff safe.

"These include mandatory vaccination for staff and volunteers, and the expert advice from our ventilation working group.

"Our $477 million Cleaner Cooler Schools Program is almost complete, meaning nearly all schools across the state have air conditioning which helps with ventilation.

"However, we are introducing these additional measures to help minimise the impact of Omicron in our schools."

Minister Grace said, consistent with health advice, regular surveillance rapid antigen testing will not be required in schools.

"There is no health advice to indicate this is needed in Queensland. Instead, all students and staff will have priority access to RATs from local testing clinics if they develop symptoms.

"Of course, anyone who has symptoms should absolutely not come into school. But if staff or students develop symptoms while at school, they will be provided with a RAT to take home. 

"If there are outbreaks of COVID-19 in our schools, Queensland Health will deploy additional RATs to clinics near those locations to meet the need.

"I want to thank all the staff and students across Queensland for the incredible resilience they have shown throughout these challenging times."

More than 870,000 Queensland students will return to school on February 7.

Children of essential workers and vulnerable children were able to return to school on January 24.

OzSage --> We urgently need better masks (respirators)

QuoteAustralia is an outlier in not yet recommending or providing high-quality face coverings that provide filtration- respirators (N95/P2/KF94/FFP2) to the community. The Covid-19 virus is transmitted through breathing in small particles known as 'aerosols' that contain the virus. These small particles are produced by breathing, talking, and coughing, and they float and linger in the air like cigarette smoke. Unlike respirators where air is only breathed in through the mask material filtering the air, surgical masks do not seal around the face, so unfiltered air is breathed in via the gaps around the mask. Respirators, when sealed to face, are designed to filter out these small particles containing virus.   ....
