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.
