Fiji's border will remain closed until the government says it can stop the largest surge of Covid-19 cases in the country.

Fiji has 51 active cases, 31 in the community, 16 in border quarantine and four are being investigated for their source of transmission.

The government also says it will not relax Covid-19 restrictions for any of the six containment zones across the main island Viti Levu until it is clear of the risks there.
