Fiji's health ministry has suffered a serious blow this week with staff members at the Covid-19 response headquarters in Suva testing positive for the virus.

This comes at the same time as 83 covid cases were confirmed on Sunday, the country's highest daily figure to date.

Our correspondent in Fiji, Lice Movono, joins me know. Bula Lice so what do we know about what caused this latest jump in cases?
