Fiji’s Ministry of Health today announced four new cases linked to the cluster in Nadali, Nausori and three recoveries over the last 24 hours.
The four new cases are household contacts of case 167 also from Nadali that was announced yesterday. The cluster is believed to have started with a close contact case of the first Makoi cluster.
The four individuals were all entered into isolation yesterday and registered positive test results overnight.
“We are prepared for rising numbers of new cases over the next two days as a high volume of swab results from primary and secondary contacts of existing cases are processed with Fiji CDC coming back online,” the ministry said.
Fiji has now had 172 cases in total since the first case was detected on 19 March 2020, with 119 recoveries, and 4 deaths.
