"It's important to note that our total number of active cases has declined to just 103 - this is because we recorded another nine recoveries overnight, bringing the total number of recoveries to 435 across the state with 48 of them from regional WA."

Cook acknowledged great work of the state's health workers to ensure community continues to get on top of the virus.

"In particular today, could I give a shout out to all those people who work in our hotels, assisting our guests to quarantine and self-isolate, and thank them for their work.

"I also want to thank every Western Australian for this incredible result a milestone in the battle against coronavirus of reaching zero new cases is obviously something of which we should all be proud.

"I know it's tough and I know it can be lonely, but we are winning this battle together. We must continue to listen to the health advice to do what is asked of us because it will save lives."
