A 54-year-old woman from Lautoka who was fully vaccinated died from COVID-19 in July, but medical officials say she had underlying medical conditions and a background of poor general health.

The Ministry of Health recorded seven COVID-19 deaths between 8th July and 30th September.

Five deaths were reported from the Central Division and two deaths were from the West.

Permanent Secretary for Health, Doctor James Fong says four deaths are from July due to a delay in the issuance of the official death certificate.

The other deceased are a 71-year-old woman from Navua, a 76-year-old man from Suva and a 95-year-old woman from Suva.

The fifth COVID-19 death is an 84-year-old man from Suva as well while the sixth COVID-19 death is a 75-year-old woman from Waila.

They all died at home and were not vaccinated

A 59-year-old man from Rakiraki is the seventh COVID-19 death.

There have also been 14 deaths of positive patients classified as non-COVID deaths as doctors have determined they died from serious pre-existing medical conditions.

There have now been 631 deaths due to COVID-19 in Fiji, with 629 of these deaths during the outbreak that started in April this year.

The Ministry of Health recorded 107 COVID infections for the 24-hour period that ended at 8 am yesterday.

There have been 68 new recoveries to report since the last update, which means that there are now 12,859 active cases.

There have been 51,060 cases during the outbreak that started in April 2021.

Doctor Fong says Fiji has recorded a total of 51,130 cases since the first case was reported in March 2020, with 37,148 recoveries.
