French Polynesia has recorded another six Covid-19 cases, bringing the tally in the second wave to 77.

The government said two of the infected people were in hospital care.

It said 11 cases were imported, with the remainder being local transmissions, mainly linked to a party in a Papeete restaurant.

A further lockdown has been ruled out by the authorities.

Employers said they backed the stance while the government had met church leaders and encouraged social distancing to curb the spread of the virus.

Media reports said two schools were closed because of suspected Covid-19 cases among staff.

A month ago, French Polynesia abolished mandatory quarantine requirements for international arrivals.

The first wave saw 62 Covid-19 cases – none of which were fatal.
