A new COVID threat has emerged off the WA coast after authorities were alerted that a Perth-bound cargo vessel from Singapore has sick crew members.

Premier Mark McGowan on Sunday revealed the Darya Krishna, sailing off Kalbarri in the State’s Mid West, had reported four out of 20 staff with flu-like symptoms.

The vessel is expected to anchor in Gage Roads tomorrow and, if it doesn’t return to Asia due to the sickness, could dock in Fremantle by the end of the month.
