The patient is the wife of an individual who had earlier tested positive, and both had been moved to isolation at the Lautoka Hospital.

The woman had tested negative in the first round of testing for all passengers, but tested positive in the second round of testing.

Dr Fong says she is currently asymptomatic.

All other passengers have tested negative for COVID-19 during the second round meaning their status has not changed after three tests.

These Fijians were cleared and released at the end of the 14-day quarantine period.

As an added precaution the frontline staff at the border quarantine facilities holding these passengers were also tested and have tested negative.
