Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has called out Prime Minister Scott Morrison as students prepare to head back to school – as the Sunshine State records 20,466 new Covid-19 cases.

Ms Palaszczuk rejected Mr Morrison’s comments that delaying the return to the classroom would only delay the peak of the Omicron strain.

She denied that his comments were correct and declared she ‘acted on health advice’ when she pushed back the starting date of the school term. 

Her comments come as one Queenslander with the virus died. The man was aged in his 70s and had other medical complications.

There are 502 people in hospitals around the state and 27 in ICU.
