51 new COVID-19 cases have been announced yesterday, and 35 of these cases are from the existing Nawaka, Nadi cluster.

Permanent Secretary for Health, Doctor James Fong says 48 of the new cases are linked to existing clusters.

6 are from the CWM Hospital cluster, 2 from the Vunimono cluster, 4 from the Health Ministry’s Incident Management Team cluster and 1 from the Waila cluster.

Doctor Fong says 1 of the new cases is noted to be a primary contact of another case, and the connection to a cluster is currently being determined by their contact tracing teams.

2 of the new cases are from Raiwai and Nakasi and are under investigation to determine whether they have links to other cases.

Doctor Fong also says an individual who was admitted in the CWM Hospital’s Acute Medical Ward and then tested positive for COVID-19 has died.

His doctors have determined that he died due to complications of the serious medical condition that led him to his admission in hospital.

The Ministry expresses their condolences to his family.

22 patients have recovered, which means there are now 684 active cases in isolation.

There have been 900 cases during the current outbreak that started in April 2021.

Fiji has recorded a total of 970 cases since the first case was reported in March 2020.

There have been 278 recoveries and 4 deaths due to COVID-19.

A total of 4 COVID-19 positive patients have died from pre-existing non-COVID-19 related illnesses.

A total of 100,286 samples have been tested since this outbreak started in April 2021, with 143,147 tested since testing began in early 2020. The national 7 day average daily test positivity is 2%.
