Western Australia has reported zero new locally-transmitted Covid-19 cases for the fourth day in a row, according to State Premier Mark McGowan.
This comes four days after the premier announced a hard lockdown for Perth metropolitan area and the Peel and South West regions of the state after a hotel security guard tested positive for Covid-19.
"I can confirm this morning that WA has recorded a fourth straight day with no new local cases of COVID-19 detected," the state premier tweeted Thursday.
The state saw a record number of people who tested for the virus on the first day of the lockdown and McGowan said the testing numbers remain high.
"I have a very important ask as we approach the end of our short-sharp lockdown - if you have any symptoms, PLEASE GET TESTED," McGowan tweeted.
The state's lockdown, which covers more than 2 million people, is set to expire Friday.
