The McGowan Government’s own projections indicate a peak in the next 1-2 weeks of 20,000-25,000 new cases per day, with a resultant increase in hospitalisations.
To avoid accelerating this process, the AMA (WA) urges Western Australians to mask up to vote.
Comments attributed to AMA (WA) President Dr Mark Duncan-Smith:
“We don’t want to look at this with hindsight and be calling it Superspreader Saturday.”
“With high new case numbers following the McGowan Government’s Let it Rip policy, the AMA (WA) is encouraging all voters on Saturday to wear a mask to polling places.”
