Two WA Residents Have Been Diagnosed With Meningococcal

A young child and an adult are recovering in Western Australia after being diagnosed with the potentially deadly meningococcal disease, but the state Health Department says the cases are not linked.

There have been 21 cases of meningococcal disease reported so far in WA this year.

A total of 46 incidents were notified in WA last year, which is double the number reported in 2016 and the most in any year since 2005.
