13 COVID-19 cases in the North There are 13 new coronavirus cases in the Northern Division.

Permanent Secretary for Health Dr James Fong said these are quarantine cases that are part of the repatriation program for the Northern Division

Dr Fong in his latest update said there is an ongoing surveillance conducted for all repatriated individuals.

“Since the last update, we have recorded 50 new cases of which 35 new cases were recorded on Tuesday and 15 new cases on Wednesday,” he said.

“The Central Division cases constitute 71 per cent of the cumulative total cases nationally, with the West making up 28 per cent and one per cent in the Northern and Eastern Divisions.

“Our national seven day rolling average is 28 daily cases. The weekly incidence rate graph by division indicates a continually declining trend,” he said. 

He said community transmission of coronavirus in the North should be expected, However the Ministry is anticipating the number of cases will be less.

“We are continuing the process of normalising movement between Viti Levu and Vanua Levu. Precautions are being taken including requiring a negative test before departure,” he said.

“Coronavirus has reached communities in almost all countries in the world. As such, community transmission of coronavirus in the north is to be expected.

“We anticipate that the number of cases, and cases with severe disease, will be less than that seen with the outbreak in Viti Levu, because of higher vaccination coverage.

“The outbreak was contained in the Lami to Nausori containment area long enough to allow for escalation of vaccination coverage and clinical response capacity outside the containment area.

“This contributed to the lower peak and the total number of cases, hospitalisations, and deaths outside the containment area within Viti Levu.

“We expect to see the same trend in the northern division, especially if covid safe measures are consistently adhered to,” he said.

He said the best protection from coronavirus is to get vaccinated, as it reduces a person’s risk of being infected, and spreading the virus.
