Fiji has recorded two new border quarantine cases of COVID-19.
In a statement, the Ministry of Health and Medical Services said the first case was a 22-year-old man who travelled to Fiji from Durban, South Africa – arriving in Nadi on FJ1410 from Auckland.
The ministry said he returned a positive result during routine quarantine testing while undergoing mandatory 14-day quarantine in a government-designated border quarantine facility in Nadi.
It stated that he currently has no symptoms, and further investigations were underway to determine whether this was a historical case of COVID-19.
The ministry said the second case was a 66-year-old woman who travelled from Sacramento, US.
She also returned a weak positive result during routine quarantine testing while undergoing mandatory 14-day quarantine.
Both individuals were transferred to the isolation ward at the Lautoka Hospital.
