A 69-year-old man whose wife was previously reported as a border quarantine case, returned a weak positive result while completing his 14-day quarantine and has been admitted to Lautoka Hospital’s isolation unit.
Fiji’s Ministry of Health did not specify whether the man’s wife was counted as a Fiji case or otherwise, only saying that the man had tested positive in the United States in January this year, and had recovered.
As such, the man would not be added to the country’s tally which remains at 67 cases, with 64 recoveries, two deaths and an active case which was reported on Friday 19 March.
A total of 35,383 COVID-19 laboratory tests have been conducted, with a daily average of 221 tests per day over the last seven days, and a weekly average of 1609 tests per week over the last two weeks.
There are currently 847 people who have recently arrived from overseas undergoing mandatory 14-day quarantine in government-supervised border quarantine facilities.
