Washington COVID: State Records 19 New COVID-19 Cases Overnight

WA recorded 19 new cases of COVID-19 overnight, Prime Minister Mark McGowan revealed.

The positive results returned from about 7500 tests are a series of school-based COVID-19 outbreaks, the day after teachers and students are isolated.

“19 local cases were reported overnight in Western Australia,” McGowan told ABC Radio Perth this morning.

“At this point, this is not the tens of thousands of cases experienced by other states.

“We encourage people to test as many things as humans can.”

At this time, it is unknown how much of the infection is associated with previous outbreaks.

On Wednesday, WA recorded 17 new cases, including 12th grade at Harrisdale High School and 11th grade at Corpse Christie University.

Late Wednesday, it was also revealed that a second teacher at Winterfold Elementary School was infected with the virus, and another class in fourth grade was quarantined.

At Harrisdale SHS, 183 12th graders who participated in the orientation program with their infected peers on Monday need to be self-quarantined for 14 days.

Over 100 parents and students lined up outside the examination clinic on Wednesday night.
