Fiji’s Ministry of Health recorded 11 new COVID-19 cases between Tuesday to Friday.
This, according to the permanent secretary for the Ministry of Health Dr James Fong.
“Since the last update, we have recorded a total of 11 new cases; of which 9 new cases were recorded on 02/12/2021, and two new cases in the last 24 hours ending at 8am this morning (December 3, 2021),” Dr Fong said.
“This epidemic curve depicts the daily positive cases since the second wave of this outbreak that began in April 2021.
“Overall for this second wave, there have been 52,473 cases recorded, with 71 per cent of the cases from the Central Division, 28 per cent of the cases from the Western Division, and 1 per cent of the cases from the Eastern and Northern divisions.
“Our national seven-day rolling average is seven daily cases calculated for November 29, 2021.”
He said the curve depicted the daily death count by division since the second wave of this outbreak began in April 2021.
“Overall, the death rate graphs for the Central and Western divisions indicate a declining trend.
“The differences between the Central and Western are similar to the incidence of the daily cases and are likely a reflection of vaccination levels, COVID mitigation measures, and differences in population density.”
No COVID-19 death was reported.
