What’s happening today!


Bula vinaka everyone.

The  Fiji Times team hopes you’re all staying well and safe with your families and loved ones in your respective bubbles, and practising every COVID-safety measure that have been advised.

And our thoughts and prayers are with everyone, especially families who have had their loved ones and friends battling this virus in their homes, and to those in isolation and quarantine facilities around the country.
