The state now has 28 active cases of the deadly virus – with the majority of these coming from the Al Kuwait ship.
A three-year-old child has been confirmed among three new cases of coronavirus in Western Australia.
The Department of Health says that all three of the cases are recently returned overseas travellers who have been in hotel quarantine.
The toddler, who is from Western Australia, is a known contact of another previously confirmed case, news.com.au reported.
The other two cases are a female in her 60s, also from WA, and a male in his 30s from interstate.
These cases bring the state’s total to 28 actives cases of coronavirus.
The majority of the state’s cases are from the Al Kuwait ship, which arrived from the United Arab Emirates on May 22.
Around 20 multinational crew members have tested positive for the virus and have been placed in hotel isolation – while one was admitted to Royal Perth Hospital overnight.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Scott Morrison has reminded Aussies that the virus is still out there.
He was asked by 2GB’s new morning host Ben Fordham when he expects the handshake to make a comeback.
“At this stage I couldn’t see that changing for the rest of this year,” Mr Morrison said.
“It’s the simple things you can do that actually protect us more than anything.
“The coronavirus hasn’t gone anywhere, it’s still out there. It can come back pretty quick.”
