WA COVID infections halve since early December Omicron wave peak

COVID infections have halved since early December’s peak in Omicron infections, a positive sign that WA is heading towards the tail end of the latest wave.

Cases dipped to 6675 during the New Year’s week (between December 30 and January 5), dramatically down from the peak of 12,383 cases in early December.

It marked a two-week-long downward trend for the State after 8391 cases were recorded the week prior. Due to the Christmas break the weekly case numbers were not reported late last month.

The weakening caseload indicates WA avoided a festive COVID spike following predictions infections would ruin the State’s first restriction-free Christmas and New Year’s.

However, there have been 33 new COVID-related deaths since WA Health’s last reporting period closed on December 22.
