Fiji has 51 active cases of COVID-19 in isolation.

16 of the cases are border quarantine cases and 31 are locally transmitted cases.

The Health Ministry’s Head of Health Protection Doctor Aalisha Sahukhan says four cases are under investigation to determine the source of transmission.

She says in total Fiji has had 121 cases of COVID-19, 68 recoveries and two deaths since the first case was recorded on March 19th 2020.

Doctor Sahukhan adds that 54,988 COVID-19 tests have been conducted since they started testing early last year.

She says the daily average is at 978 tests per day over the last 7 days and the weekly average is now at 5,995 tests per week over the last two weeks.

Doctor Sahukhan revealed that a record 1,736 tests were conducted yesterday alone.

She says testing numbers from the labs at CWM and Lautoka Hospitals have not been received so the number will actually be higher.
