The suffering continues in Fiji as Covid-19 cases soar amid its worsening health crisis.

There's been a record 1285 cases in the last 24 hours, which has lead to new curfew hours for the nation's main island of Viti Levu.

Meanwhile, despite New Zealand's responsibility to support its neighbor, Jacinda Ardern says she cannot influence the Fijian government to go into a lockdown.

Eleisha Foon has the details.
