News Today || Headlines Today

WA’s COVID updates — including cases, hospitalisations and deaths — will be reported weekly instead of daily from Friday.

State and Territory health ministers, including WA’s Amber-Jade Sanderson, have agreed to the change, which is supported by the chief health officers.

“Federal, State and Territory health ministers have agreed to transition to weekly reporting on COVID-19 statistics,” a statement issued by the ministers said.

“The move is supported by Chief Health Officers and comes as all Australians adjust to the continuing presence of COVID-19 in the community.

“COVID-19 data will be released each Friday by the Commonwealth, and all States and Territories, on information available up until the previous day (that is, each Thursday), until further notice.

“The alignment will provide comparable data on notifications, hospitalisations, ICU admissions and deaths across jurisdictions and nationally.”
