The Head of Health Protection Dr Aalisha Sahukhan says 26 of the new COVID-19 cases are linked to the previous announced clusters.

She says the cluster for COVID-19 Incident Management Team has 5 new cases, CWM Hospital cluster has 18 new cases, Fiji Navy cluster has 1 new case, Nawaka, Nadi cluster has 1 new case and Caubati cluster also has 1 new case.

9 cases are under investigation to determine if they have any links to other cases.

2 cases are from Lami, 2 are in Nasinu, 2 are in Valelevu, 2 cases are in Koronivia and 2 cases are from Toorak.

She says 15 patients have recovered and there are now 624 active cases in isolation.

Dr. Sahukhan says they are aware of the concern about the number of frontline health care workers that have tested positive for COVID-19.

Dr. Sahukhan says medical staff and frontline health care workers cannot stay at home as there would be no response to this outbreak and nobody will be left to take care of sick patients in hospitals if they stay at home.

Dr. Sahukhan adds if you're carrying out approved work outside your home, then you should avoid eating lunch with others in your office as you have to take off masks to eat.

She says most offices have common office tea room which is a potential source of transmission.
