Ten Covid-19 cases recorded in Tahiti

Another 10 Covid-19 cases have been recorded in French Polynesia in the last 48-hour reporting period but the pandemic has faded.

The number of active cases has dropped sharply and is now 38.

The health authorities say one patient remains in hospital.

The death toll of the pandemic is 648, with most fatalities registered during last year's outbreak with the Delta variant.

Vaccinations have continued and 81 percent of those 12 years and older have had two jabs.

International travel options have been expanded with last week's resumption of flights between Tahiti and New Zealand.
