Qld COVID-19: Economic recovery plan continues amid strong health response

Published:

Queensland’s comprehensive plan to Unite and Recover from the global COVID-19 pandemic has continued this week with a focus on outback tourism jobs, agricultural industry development and sporting events, as just one new case is recorded and active cases fall.

There are now two active cases, 1054 recovered and a total of 1067.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said although the whole world was facing a long and difficult path to recovery, Queensland’s COVID-19 figures this week were evidence of a strong local health response paving the way for the state’s economy to reopen more quickly.

The Unite and Recover for Queensland Jobs plan involves creating employment as part of the COVID-19 recovery, such as this week’s outback tourism and agricultural industry investment.

“I know how proud Queenslanders are of their strong health response, which means we can open up our economy faster,” Ms Palaszczuk said.

“So we have to be very cautious yet optimistic for the road ahead to finish what’s underway.”

Announced this week:

  • $3 million for outback tourism as part of Unite and Recover
  • Another $5 million to deal with feral pests as part of the Unite and Recover plan
  • A further easing of restrictions to allow up to 10,000 spectators at stadiums from June 27
  • A Clinical Stock Reserve to ensure frontline services always have supplies such as surgical masks, gloves, key pharmaceuticals and hand sanitiser
