No new cases reported today and more importantly no active cases currently in the state.
Congratulations WA we did it! We now have zero active cases being monitored within the state of Western Australia.
While there have been many times that we have come close to zero active cases it has now been 481 days since Western Australia recorded its first positive case of COVID-19.
So that means since February 16, 2020 there has always been at least one active case within the state. But no more!
While the zero active cases might be short-lived with the daily influx of international travellers, this is definitely a small win to celebrate given the situations many have faced in other states and of course in foreign countries all around the world.

It has now been reported approximately 74,500 people have booked a vaccination appointment with WA Health since the announcement on 8 June.
“With more doses now becoming available, Western Australia can get on with it and get vaccinated.”
