The Health Ministry says they have two COVID-19 deaths to report for the 29th of July 2021.
Both COVID-19 deaths were reported from the Central Division.
Permanent Secretary for Health Doctor James Fong says the two deaths are being reported now due to the delay in the issuance of the official death certificates.
The first COVID-19 death to report is a 79-year-old man from Suva who died at home on 29th July 2021. He was not vaccinated.
The second COVID-19 death to report is a 65-year-old woman from Suva who died at home on 29th July 2021. She was not vaccinated.
There have been 10 more deaths of COVID-19 positive patients.
However, these deaths have been classified as non-COVID deaths by their doctors. The doctors have determined that these deaths were caused by a serious pre-existing medical condition and not COVID-19.
There have now been 592 deaths due to COVID-19 in Fiji, with 590 of these deaths during the outbreak that started in April this year.
