From , 6:01 am on 20 April 2021

Schools in Fiji are closing today as health authorities race to determine if there is Covid-19 in the community.

The towns of Nadi and Lautoka have been in lockdown since Monday morning after the close contact of a soldier who contracted the virus at the quarantine facility in Nadi last weekend, also registered a positive Covid-19 test result.

So far the lockdown has not been extended to the rest of Fiji but there are restrictions in place.

Our correspondent in Suva, Lice Movono, joins us now. Bula Lice, so what are the latest restrictions?
