COVID-19 Update

Fiji Govt lifts nationwide curfew
 

The Fijian Government lifted its nationwide curfew at midnight - ending almost 22 months of strict movement restrictions due to Covid-19.

Several other measures were also relaxed, over public transport, sports events, nightclubs and no longer requiring the use of the care-Fiji contact tracing app.

Mask wearing, however, will remain mandatory.

Acting prime minister Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said Fiji is past its worst with over 90 percent of the population over the age of 15 fully vaccinated, and the number of people hospitalised declining.

He said "it is time for a new direction" in responding to Covid-19.

Fiji recorded its first positive infection in March 2020, and has had 811 deaths since.
