Ms Berejiklian suggested WA's lockdown was an over-reaction and noted that she only locked down Sydney's Northern Beaches when there had been 40 cases of community transmission.

'It's very difficult going into lockdown for any amount, it's scary and the businesses and communities in families and I do wish them well and I hope the situation has a good result and hopefully there won't be any cases of further community transmission and hopefully the precautions they are taking will be the end of it,' she said.

'The key is to make sure we act quickly and to provide as much information as possible, but also to make a proportional response. We don't know of any community transmission within WA apart from the security guard, so we are acting according to that risk.'
