The three new cases announced today are all linked to case number 136, the gentleman from Saru, Lautoka who presented with COVID-like symptoms to the Natabua Health centre and tested positive on Friday.

Permanent Secretary for Health and Medical Services Dr James Fong said the new cases are:

  • Wife of Case 136
  • Daughter of Case 136
  • Primary contact of wife

“All three have been in isolation since yesterday. The contact tracers are locating and quarantining their close contacts. All other known primary contacts relating to the three have tested negative,” he said.

Since Saturday, updates about Fiji’s COVID-19 situation were made through a national announcement and streamed live through the Fijian Government Facebook page.

But moving forward, Dr Fong said they would host press conferences several times a week to field questions from members of the media, particularly following major policy announcements.

Lockdown Zones To Be Lifted

From 4am tomorrow (Monday 10 May, 2021), the lockdown zones in Wainitarawau Settlement in Cunningham Suva and the Vuniwai Settlement in Taveuni will be lifted.

Wainitarawau settlement was locked down on April 21, 2021 and the Vuniwai settlement two days later on April 23, 2021.
