Fiji has reported 26 new COVID-19 cases across the country in the past seven days.

Ministry of Health and Medical Services permanent secretary Dr James said 19 cases were recorded in the Central division, five new cases in the Western division, one new case in the Eastern Division, and one new case in the Northern Division.

Dr Fong said the Central Division cases constitute 7 per cent of the cumulative total cases nationally, with the Western division making up 28 per cent and one per cent in the Northern and Eastern Divisions.

He said since the last update, we have recorded 14 new cases of which nil new cases were recorded on November 30 and 12 new cases in the last 24 hours ending at 8 am this morning.

“The national 7-day rolling average of cases as of 27th November is 7 daily cases.

“The weekly incidence rate graph by division indicates a continually declining trend. Furthermore, the peak weekly incidence in the western division was approximately a third of that in the central division, and the cumulative case numbers are also reflecting a similar difference.”

There was also one COVID-19 death to report.

“The COVID-19 death to report is of a 67-year-old female from the Central Division who died at home on 13/08/2021. She was not vaccinated. This is reported today due to a delay in the issuance of the death certificate.”
