The 7 day average of new COVID-19 cases per day for Fiji has increased to 105 cases per day or 119 cases per million population per day.
Permanent Secretary for Health, Doctor James Fong says the increasing number of cases in the Lami-Suva-Nausori containment zone clearly indicates ongoing community transmission.
He says there are also clusters in Naitasiri and one cluster in Korovou.
Doctor Fong says we continue to have cases reported in Nadi, but so far they are from within the containment zone in the Nawaka area.
He says to date this outbreak appears contained to Viti Levu, with the Northern and Eastern divisions yet to detect a case.
