Eighteen new cases were reported yesterday and another 23 new cases today by the Ministry of Health and Medical Services.

Permanent Secretary for Health and Medical Services, Dr James Fong announced this in a virtual press conference on COVID-19 this evening.

Dr Fong said all of these cases are linked to existing clusters.

The 18 cases from yesterday are linked to the following clusters:

  • Narere cluster – 9
  • Waila cluster – 5
  • Muanikoso cluster – 1
  • Navy cluster – 1
  • Korociri Nadi – 2

He said the two in Nadi are linked to each other and are from the Korociri Settlement near Nawaka village, which is now under lockdown.

“The 23 cases today are as follows: 15 are part of the Navy cluster (including one from Nadonumai in Lami, and three from Khalsa), seven are part of the Waila cluster, one is part of the Nadali cluster,” Dr Fong said.

He said the 46 cases announced on Friday were generated from known clusters.

“The three that were under investigation are now known to be from the Navy cluster.

“This is reassuring in that the cases coming from our screening areas and tests coming from non-screening areas remain negative.”
