Fiji recorded a new daily toll of COVID-19 infections with 166 cases registered in the last 24 hours ending 8am yesterday.

The 77-year-old man who was bedridden and at home for several months was diagnosed as a COVID-19 positive patient by the CWM screening team.

He adds while he had pre-existing medical conditions, based on available clinical data the consensus is that this represents a COVID-death.

The Permanent Secretary says this brings the total COVID-19 deaths to seven.

The family has been counselled and further containment measures have been activated.

The Ministry will now report on areas of interest since the number of positive cases has grown.

Doctor Fong says community transmission is broad throughout the Central Division.

He adds they are expecting an increase in the number of cases in Lami, therefore, they are ensuring that the cases are not exported into the other non-containment zones.

Any request to move outside of the Central Division to other areas of Viti Levu and from Viti Levu to Vanua Levu as well as the Maritime zones need to be strictly regulated.

Pre-departure swab tests and quarantine capability are being expanded and strengthened to reduce the risk of virus spreading within and beyond Viti Levu.

The Ministry is urging Fijians to keep practicing COVID safe measures.
