Total confirmed cases for Fiji now at 15

Tuesday April 07, 2020, 14:32pm

This morning, after testing another 25 samples overnight at our molecular lab, we have confirmed a single new case of COVID-19 in Fiji.

Our newly-confirmed case of coronavirus is the husband of an existing patient from Lautoka –– the Zumba classmate of patient number one. This was a case we have expected for some time and, thankfully, this 33-year-old gentleman did not develop any symptoms until after he was safely in isolation and posed no risk to the public.

This is the sixth confirmed transmission that can be traced back to our first case.

There are now 15 cases of COVID-19 in Fiji. All of our patients remain in stable condition.
