COVID-19: 105 New Cases, Grantham Road, Tacirua Cases Under Investigation
 The highest number of COVID-19 new cases recorded in a day was announced today.
Permanent Secretary for Health and Medical Services Dr James Fong said there are 105 new cases to report today.
98 of the new cases are linked to the following existing clusters:
CWMH: 21
Nawajikuma, Nawaka, Nadi – 16
Tramline, Nawaka, Nadi – 6
Kinoya – 1
Navosai – 2
Waila – 11
Navy – 11
IMT – 8
Muanikoso – 15
Nasinu Police Barracks – 7
Dr Fong said cases from the following areas are under investigation to determine whether they have links to other cases:
Grantham Road (5)
Tacirua (2).
A review of cases from Nadi reported yesterday has found that 1 case tested positive twice, and was subsequently counted twice, due to different names for the same person being entered on the forms for each of the samples tested. Therefore, the duplicate record has been removed from the active and total case count.
8 patients have recovered, which means there are now 796 active cases in isolation. There have been 1048 cases during this outbreak that started in April 2021.
We have recorded a total of 1118 cases in Fiji since the first case was reported in March 2020. There have been 312 recoveries and 4 deaths due to COVID-19. A total of 6 COVID-19 positive patients have died from pre-existing non-COVID-19 related
