There were three more deaths of COVID-19 positive patients, but Dr Fong said their deaths were not caused by the virus.
Thirty more deaths are under investigation, he said.
"Doctors have determined that the three deaths were caused by serious pre-existing medical conditions and not Covid."
Dr Fong said there have now been 125 deaths due to the coronavirus in Fiji, with 123 of those deaths during the outbreak that started in April this year.
"We have also recorded 51 Covid-positive patients who died from the serious medical conditions that they had before they contracted the virus. But these are not classified as Covid-19 deaths.
"There have been 343 new recoveries reported since the last update, which means that there are now 14,943 active cases. There have been 19,282 cases during the outbreak that started in April 2021.
"We have recorded a total of 19,352 cases in Fiji since the first case was reported in March 2020, with 4233 recoveries."
