SUVA, Feb. 3 (Xinhua) -- Fiji reported on Wednesday one new imported case of COVID-19, who was a 48-year-old man returning to Fiji late January.

According to Fiji's Ministry of Health, the man arrived in Nadi city on Jan. 27. The man has been isolated in Lautoka city after testing positive for COVID-19 while undergoing a 14-day quarantine in Nadi.

Meanwhile, a 25-year-old female has presented a weak positive test result during routine exit testing. As a precaution, she has also been isolated in Lautoka.

The health ministry said that due to her history of testing positive and recovery in Ireland, she was not considered as a new case for Fiji.

Fiji has reported 56 confirmed cases of COVID-19, including one active case, 53 recoveries and 2 deaths, since its first case was reported on March 19 last year.

The last 38 of the total cases have been international travel associated cases detected in border quarantine. It has been 291 days since the last case was detected outside border quarantine in Fiji.

A total of 26,510 laboratory tests have so far been conducted in the island country, with a daily average of 154 tests over the last seven days, and a weekly average of 1,179 tests over the last two weeks.

Fiji still maintains a strict travel restriction for foreign visitors alongside a nationwide curfew effective from March 30 last year. Enditem
