A health expert is warning against the Fiji government's plan to isolate Covid-19 patients at home amid the escalating cases in the country.

The Health Ministry announced the move amid a daily record of cases, taking the total number of infections since April to over 600.

There have been calls for the government to declare a state of emergency but Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama says there is no need.
