The COVID death toll in Queensland has been used for political purposes: Hanson

Sky News Australia – Aug 17, 2020

One Nation leader Pauline Hanson says the upcoming Queensland election be will be a referendum on the way Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has handled the COVID-19 crisis in the state.

“She’s actually played this very well,” Ms Hanson told Sky News host Peter Gleeson.

Ms Hanson said the media reports of the the danger of COVID-19 incited fear in Queenslanders.

She said many of the deaths recorded as a COVID-19 death were of people who died with coronavirus, not necessarily because of it.

“That concerns me greatly because I think that has been used politically which … is so wrong,” Ms Hanson said.
