I refer to question without notice 1042 asked on 30 November, which refers to water contamination at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital.

(1) How many substantiated and unsubstantiated cases of illness have been associated with the bacterial contamination and were any of these legionnaire's disease?

(2) How many point-of-use filters have been purchased?

(3) Over what period will these filters be deployed, and how long until the contamination is remedied?

(4) How many patients have been impacted and how many beds have been intermittently closed as a result?

Hon STEPHEN DAWSON replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.

I have been advised that further time is required to answer this question. The information will be provided to the honourable member by 2 December 2021.
