Queensland has recorded 8580 new Covid infections and 13 deaths associated with the virus on Sunday.
It is a drop on the day before, when 10,391 new cases were confirmed.
The number of people with Covid in hospital dropped to 745, down from 853, while intensive care admission numbers fell to 41 from 53.
Chief health officer John Gerrard on Saturday said the state had reached roughly the midpoint of its Omicron outbreak.
“We’re going to see a steady fall in hospitalisations over the course of three or four days in the various regions of Queensland,” he said.
“This is the peak, it’s not the end. The unknown is what happens as those numbers decline, what the tail looks like. We’re only sort of halfway through.”
