The pause on quarantine-free travel with Victoria's been extended until at least tomorrow.

The Health Ministry says it needs a better understanding of the developing situation in the Australian state - including the number and pattern of Covid-19 cases.

Correspondent Lesley Yeomans says Victoria was supposed to come out of lockdown tonight, but that's been delayed.

"The Premier Daniel Andrews indicated they still neds some more time and we're waiting to see what the numbers are today."

Our Health Ministry will review the quarantine-free travel pause with Victoria and New South Wales tomorrow.

Ministry staff are keeping in contact with Australian authorities about each state - including keeping a close eye on South Australia, which has a new community case.

Meanwhile, Fiji has announced another 784 new cases and 15 new deaths overnight.
