Dr Fong says the double-digit daily case numbers are unsettling news for many and they should be as this is a highly transmissible and deadly disease.

“There has never been a higher level of risk in Lami-Nausori Containment Area than today. Everyone needs to know it, and everyone must act accordingly through the good health practices we have advocated from day one of this outbreak.”

He has warned Fijians that this is the time when they should start taking the warnings seriously.

The Permanent Secretary has urged Fijians to stay home as much as possible.

He adds if you do leave, wear a mask and make sure the careFIJI app is installed on your phone and Bluetooth is switched on.

Two-meter distance needs to be maintained and Fijians need to wash their hands.

He says people should not share cigarettes or takis.

Head of Health Protection, Doctor Aalisha Sahukhan has confirmed that 15 patients have recovered.

This means there are now 624 active cases in isolation.

Doctor Sahukhan says a total of three COVID-19 patients have died due to serious medical conditions.

She adds the national seven day test positivity average stands at 1.9 percent however, this is increasing due to the influx of cases from the Lami-Nausori containment zone.

“Total of 93,066 samples have been tested since this outbreak started in April of this year with 135,927 tests since testing began early last year.3200 tests have so far been recorded for June the 8th and this number is expected to increase as we get more testing data from the labs.”

Dr Sahukhan has urged Fijians to follow all the COVID safe protocols to ensure their loved ones are safe.
