There were 14,245 cases recorded, with the number of people in hospital with COVID dipped slightly to 301, although there was one additional patient in intensive care taking the total to 12.

One death was reported, a man in his 90s who passed away on May 18.

The number of active cases in the State smashed through the 90,000 barrier for the first time – reaching 91,162 in the latest reporting.

With such high levels of the virus circulating the community many West Australians turning out to vote opted to wear masks, even though the face coverings are no longer compulsory.
