Corona virus and healthcare on the Fijis

Healthcare on the Fijis

Healthcare on the Fijis is slightly below average in a worldwide comparison.

Probably the most important indicator that can be used to summarize the efficiency of all measures is general life expectancy. In other words, the theoretical age that a newborn child could potentially reach today. At the moment this age on the Fijis is 65.7 years for men and 69.3 years for women. For comparison: worldwide life expectancy is about 5.3 years lower (men: 70.6 / women: 75.0 years).

In total, the sum of 214.55 USD is spent per year and inhabitant. This corresponds to approximately 3.4% of the gross domestic product. Internationally, this amount averages 1,111.08 USD (~ 9.9% of the respective GDP).

Distribution of the corona virus

Spread of the corona virus on the Fijis

Currently: 49.9 new infections per day per 100,000 inhabitants
By July 26th, 2021, 21361 infected persons and 161 deaths have been reported in the country. The first confirmed infections were reported in March 2020, which is the date of the official notification. An additional 10-14 days are calculated for noticing one's own infection, the doctor's appointment, the laboratory test and, above all, the period from the infection until the first symptoms appear.

The total of 21,361 infected people represent 2.4% of the country's total population. The number of new infections during the 29th calendar week (07/19/2021 to 07/25/2021) was 3,133 , representing 49.9 cases per 100,000 inhabitants per day.


The first graph shows the number of reported infections per calendar week. The second graph below the number of deaths.

Mortality rate of infected persons

From the previously infected and deceased people, on the Fijis results in a mortality rate of 0.8%. However, it should be borne in mind that death occurs an average of 19 days after the first symptoms appear. The time of the actual infection is therefore followed by several days until a person affected has a medical test carried out and the results are available. In order to quantify mortality more precisely, one would therefore have to compare the deaths that have occurred to date with those reported 18,228 infected up to 14 days ago. This gives on the Fijis a new mortality rate of 0.8%.

Due to the current corona pandemic, we update the worldwide case numbers weekly. A list of all infected and dead people by country can be found on our Corona virus topic page.

Medical supplies

Corona virus and healthcare on the FijisMedical care provided by doctors and hospitals on the Fijis is below average compared to the world population. The country provides 2.3 hospital beds per 1000 inhabitants. The global mean here is 2.7 beds. Within the EU, 5.6 beds are available for every 1,000 residents.

With about 751 physicians on the Fijis, there are about 0.84 doctors per 1000 inhabitants. Here again the comparison: worldwide this standard is 1.50 physicians per 1000 inhabitants and in the EU even 3.57.

Through medical care, the mortality rate of major known diseases can be reduced as far as possible. For example, only about 38 percent of all people who suffer from cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases or chylomicron retention disease (CRD) currently die.
