Fiji has 121 new cases of COVID-19 to report for the 24 hour period that ended at 8am yesterday and no new COVID-19 deaths to report.

103 cases are from the Western Division and 18 cases are from the Central Division.

There are now 12,948 active cases.

Fiji has recorded 50,010 cases during the outbreak that started in April 2021.

The country has recorded a total of 50,080 cases since the first case was reported in March 2020.

Permanent Secretary for Health Doctor James Fong says following further review of their active case database they have an additional 9 COVID-19 deaths to report for the period of 12th July to 9th August.

All deaths were reported from the Central Division.

He says an analysis of the 9 deaths have highlighted that individuals were aged between 49 to 83 years.

4 were males and 6 of the individuals died at home or on their way to the hospital.

6 of the people that died were unvaccinated.

The remaining 3 received only one dose of the vaccine.

This means that there were no deaths of individuals who were fully vaccinated.

There have been 11 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 575 deaths due to COVID-19 in Fiji, with 573 of these deaths during the outbreak that started in April this year.
