Fiji defence force under spotlight over Covid-19 case spike

From Pacific Waves, 6:01 am on 5 June 2021

Fiji's defence force has come under heavy scrutiny amid more Covid-19 cases being found across the main island Viti Levu.

There are now over 350 active cases, and the fastest-growing cluster is the Navy with 31 more cases this week alone.

The Navy cluster began when an officer contracted the virus at a funeral and later infected members of his ship.

Christine Rovoi has been following the story and joins me now.
