COVID-19: 22 New Cases | 324 Active Cases

Another 22 cases were recorded as of this morning

One new case has not yet been linked to other cases or clusters and is currently under investigation.

The individual is from Caubati and was swabbed at the Valelevu stationary screening clinic after presenting with symptoms.

All the other new cases are linked to existing clusters, including the new CWM Hospital cluster.

All of these cases are stable and are either in isolation facilities or home isolation.

The new cases are linked to the following communities and clusters:

CWMH cluster – 14
Navosai cluster – 4
Kinoya cluster – 2
Navy cluster – 1
Caubati – 1 (under investigation)

Fiji has had 495 cases since first case was recorded in March last year, 425 during this current outbreak which started in April.

There are currently 324 active cases in Fiji.

Yesterday we screened 5,882 in our stationary screening clinics of which 26% were screened.

Our mobile teams screened 10,436 and of which 18.5% were screened.

We want to reassure the public that all the medical and security forces who have turned positive are not part of the public health team directly engaging the public in our containment and community surveillance programs.

Last night we conducted extensive swabbing at CWM Hospital. The testing of those swabs has revealed the 14 new positive cases announced today.

Swabbing has continued today and we will be awaiting more results.

Non-emergency outpatient services are not available, including the special outpatients department, and the Acute Medical Ward, Acute Surgical Ward, Beqa Ward, and ANZ Ward remain on lockdown.

The Emergency Department is functioning and inpatient pediatrics and obstetrics services are continuing.

The Maternity Ward and Children’s Wing have developed stringent screening areas in the Antenatal Clinic area and the Children’s Outpatient Department for patients requiring urgent admission.

All access to from other parts of the hospital has been closed off to the Maternity and Children’s Wing.

CWM hospital contingency plans for emergency scenarios have been finalised.
