Four New Cases Of COVID-19 Recorded In The Country

Four new cases of COVID-19 have been recorded in Fiji as of this afternoon.

This was announced by the Permanent Secretary for Health and Medical Services Dr James Fong.

Two of those cases are in Nadi, one in Lautoka and one in Makoi, Suva.

Three of the cases involved persons who attended the funeral that we have identified as a super-spreader event, including a husband and wife who circulated through the community.

“They were placed in quarantine on Friday, and the Ministry of Health is tracking their movements and contacts for the five days before they went into quarantine,” Dr Fong said.

“Regarding the Makoi case, we are not certain of the source of her infection, but the Ministry of Health is busy doing contact tracing to determine who she may have been in contact with before or after she was infected,” he said.

“She and her husband have been placed in quarantine, but prudence requires us to treat this case as a possible community transmission.”

This is now termed as potential cluster.

There are now a total of 24 active in isolation: 

  • 14 border quarantine cases
  • 9 locally transmitted cases
  • 1 community transmitted case

The Ministry of Health and Medical Services has urged all Fijians to adhere to all COVID-19 protocols.
