SUVA, Oct. 21 (Xinhua) -- The Fiji Health Ministry on Thursday reported 25 new COVID-19 cases in the last 24 hours.

Permanent Secretary for Health James Fong said in the past seven days, 181 cases were recorded in the central division, 82 new cases in the western division, 16 new cases in the eastern division, and 6 new cases in the northern division.

There have been 663 deaths due to COVID-19 in Fiji, with 661 of these deaths during the outbreak that started in April this year.

Fong said the daily case numbers are currently not being used as the sole indicator to monitor the progress of the outbreak. The ministry continues monitoring other indicators such as test positivity, hospitalisations, and deaths to track the progress of the outbreak, and it is noted that there is a downward trend across all indicators of the COVID-19 epidemic in Fiji.
