Premier’s child in serious state with Covid

One of Mark McGowan’s three children was in a serious condition from their Covid-19 infection.

In a statement the Western Australian Premier’s office confirmed the distressing news.

“The child is fully vaccinated, however was in a serious condition as a result of the infection,” it read.

“The child remains in hospital and is receiving ongoing treatment.

“The McGowan family asks for privacy regarding this situation at this difficult time.”

The Premier has two teenage boys and a young daughter.

It was only yesterday Mr McGowan announced he also tested positive after doing a PCR test.

He said it was not surprising because one of his children was infected with the virus.

The Premier was already in isolation and working from home being deemed a close contact.

“In accordance with the protocols, this will extend my quarantine period until I am hopefully cleared to leave home next Thursday afternoon, at the earliest,” he said.

“The WA community has been fantastic throughout this global pandemic, and WA’s success to date is a credit to each and every Western Australian who continues to follow the health guidelines and keep our community safe, and our economy strong.”
