COVID-19 cases occur in Western Australia

Western Australia (WA) has experienced the largest surge in COVID-19 cases since the start of the pandemic, with over 5,000 new daily cases, more than double the cases reported last week.

The state has done its best to curb the flow of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, including enacting snap lockdown early in the pandemic and deploying evidence of the country’s broadest vaccination requirements.

The eastern states had already begun to release the virus by early 2022 and learn to live with it, but the WA extended border restrictions and the country until finally released in March. It remained isolated from other areas.

The state currently has a total of about 20,800 cases, with a peak of about 10,000 infections per day and is expected to arrive as early as next week.

Western Australia’s Minister of Health, Amber-Jade Sanderson, said cases are currently difficult to predict accurately, but cases may begin to decline by the end of March.

“If the modeling is correct, we hope to get through the worst by the end of this month,” says Sanderson.

“I hope the peak will continue within a week, but again, Western Australia is a bit of an experimental population,” she said.

“We didn’t have a large amount of COVID in the community, we have a very high vaccination rate so we don’t know exactly what will happen.”

Over 95% of the state’s population over the age of 12 have received two doses, and 69% over the age of 16 have already received the third dose.

Immediately after the state enacts a protocol with a very high number of cases, important workers, such as those in the fields of health and education, return to work even if they are considered close contact, unless symptoms are seen. Is allowed. Submit a work and daily COVID test.

Sanderson said he had the opportunity to recommend vaccination to Western Australians and said that about 50 percent of COVID-19 hospitalizations were unvaccinated.

“There is no stronger evidence (of the benefits of vaccination),” she said.

“This is now in our community and in our hospital. If you haven’t been vaccinated, get vaccinated.”

The state’s high immunization rates are driven by strict immunization obligations, including industries such as health, law enforcement, mining, construction, hospitality, entertainment, fitness, courts and government.
