COVID-19: Pulse of WA - June

COVID-19: Pulse of WA - June teaser

Date published 28 Jun 2022

The fallout from the Federal Election dominated the news cycle last fortnight, along with a strong focus on rising interest rates and cost of living pressures. Consequently, our latest COVID-19 Pulse of WA survey revealed that although intentions to shop online, support local businesses and maintain COVID-19 hygiene measures are strong, the community intends to cut spending in the coming months.

Despite this economic caution, travel intentions remain strong, with West Aussies increasingly becoming more comfortable with overseas and interstate travel. Locally, COVID-19 case numbers continued to spike, and hospital case numbers increased. Media attention, however, has shifted focus to the imminent flu season and the further pressures this could potentially place on WA’s healthcare system. 

Overall, there was little shift in the mood of the community this fortnight. On balance, people are still feeling more negative than positive, but recent election results appear to have a positive impact on sentiment with people feeling more relaxed and less frustrated than previous fortnights.
