There were three more confirmed Covid-19 coronavirus cases in French Polynesia today, bringing the total to six.
Earlier today, the authorities said there was one case in Moorea and one in Tahiti.
In an updated statement, the government said a third had been confirmed today.
The individual is reported to be a European tourist who arrived two days ago.
Last week, the first tourist was hospitalised with the virus after falling ill on the atoll of Fakarava.
The French High Commissioner Dominique Sorain said access will be tightened and only residents are now allowed to enter French Polynesia.
Movements will be further restricted, and after the closure of schools today, child care centres will also have to shut.
New Caledonia’s government has confirmed the territory’s first two cases of Covid-19.
The government said last night two people who arrived from Australia on their honeymoon have tested positive for the coronavirus.
