3 new cases of COVID-19 have been recorded by the Heath Ministry since last Friday, however the Permanent Secretary of Health Dr James Fong says immunisation remains the only means to reduce the disease spread, and protect those in the community who are less able to fend for themselves.

All 3 cases were recorded in the Western Division while nil cases were recorded in the Central, Northern and Eastern Divisions.

The national 7-day rolling average of cases as of 2nd October is 0 daily cases.

The national 7-day average daily test positivity is 0.5%, which is within the WHO recommendation of 5%.

The Health Ministry says 100% of our estimated adult population have received one dose and 95% have received the second dose.

They say vaccination of Fiji’s target population has been progressing well with the 12 years and above coverage rate being 99% for Dose 1 and 89% for Dose 2.

Furthermore, as of the 06th of October, 167,300 booster-eligible individuals have received their 1st booster dose while 27,063 people have been received their 2nd booster dose.
