Six new deaths — two women in their 90s, a woman in her 80s, a woman in her 70s, and two men ages in their 70s and 80s — were reported to WA Health on Saturday, which date back to July 23.

There were 4,034 new cases reported on Saturday.

It comes as the nation comes close to chalking up 12,000 total virus-related deaths. The nation has recorded three straight days of 100-plus deaths related to the virus.

On Friday, WA Chief Health Officer Andy Robertson ruled out shortening the COVID isolation period from seven to five days, despite the time frame contributing to staff shortages at businesses and hospitals across the State.
