A NEW public exposure site in the City of Wanneroo has been added to the list of places visited by confirmed Covid-19 cases.

This morning the Department of Health asked media outlets for their support to keep the public up-to-date with the new information including that the Pizza Hut at 6/981 Wanneroo Rd has been added to the main exposure list with the fastfood outlet visited on April 29 between 7.15pm and 7.45pm.

The department said after further contact tracing and review of CCTV footage it had not only been able to add more locations but also refine some times related to the cases in the community.

A new time of 10.45am to 11.15am has been released for when a positive case visited Puma in Madeley on April 30.

Meanwhile, the McGowan Government says it is allocating $2 million in relief funding to support those directly affected by the Covid-19 crisis in India.

The $2m will go towards a Western Australian grant program that will be available to local Indian community organisations who are already working with partners to provide on-the-ground support in India.

Premier Mark McGowan said the funding would help the local Indian community deliver more relief to people in India.

“The situation in India right now is absolutely heart-breaking – with the country now facing more than 350,000 new cases and thousands of deaths every day,’’ he said.

WA Indian organisations are already providing support through the provision and installation of oxygen concentrates in hospitals, the sourcing and provision of ventilators and grants to those vulnerable and disadvantaged members of the Indian society.

Western Australians can also make donations to Sewa International Australia, a registered not-for-profit organisation that has a presence in India, which is also raising funds for the Covid-19 plight in India.
