2 new cases confirmed for Fiji - total confirmed cases now at 14

Monday April 06, 2020, 15:11pm

Yesterday, after a second round of confirmation testing, Fiji confirmed that our 12th case of COVID-19 was, in fact, the daughter-in-law of case number nine –– the gentleman in Labasa who returned from India. This morning, we have confirmed an additional two cases of the virus.

The first new case is the wife of the gentleman from Labasa. She was taken into isolation two days before being diagnosed positive this morning. The second new case is the sister of Fiji’s very first case, the flight attendant from Lautoka.

Both cases are close contacts of previous patients, and both were already in isolation when their symptoms developed and they tested positive. So, luckily, the risk of further transmission is very low.
