Deputy Premier and Minister for Health and Ambulance services Steven Miles said while the state is not out of the woods yet, the hard work of Queenslanders was making a difference.

Queensland has conducted more than 1 million tests since the beginning of the virus outbreak.

The Deputy Premier said more than 10,000 tests had been conducted in the past 24 hours.

"Thank you to everyone who has come forward and got tested. We couldn't have done this without you. We must keep up our high levels of testing," he said.

"If you have any symptoms at all, please stay home, get tested and stay home until you get your results back."
