Queensland has recorded no new cases of Covid-19 for the first time since the outbreak began, according to the State's Premier Anastacia Palaszczuk.
Speaking to the press this morning Palaszczuk said the news was "tremendous" and could mean restrictions may be lifted if numbers remain down for an extended period of time.
Over the weekend Queensland recorded five new cases. In the state there are currently 1,019 confirmed cases of the coronavirus, with 85,870 tests conducted and 738 recovered patients.
The announcement follows the news from Western Australia yesterday that there was just one new case of Covid-19 overnight.
In Australia there are 6,619 confirmed cases and 71 people have died from the virus to date.
Nationally NSW still has the most confirmed cases of Covid-19 with 2,963, followed by VIC (1,329), QLD (1,019), WA (545), SA (435), TAS (197), ACT (103), NT (28).
