A coronavirus outbreak in Fiji is rapidly growing, with 180 new cases reported in the past 24 hours.

The current outbreak began in April and has resulted in seven deaths and numerous restrictions, although so far Fiji has resisted a country-wide lockdown.

New Zealand Foreign Minister Nanaia Mahuta said this week it was providing an additional $NZ10 million ($A9.3 million) for COVID-19 operations and food supplies in Fiji.

New Zealand and Australia have also sent medical teams.

Located north of New Zealand, Fiji is home to 940,000 people.

Its tourism-dependent economy had already been hard-hit by the pandemic before the latest outbreak.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, Fiji has reported more than 2200 cases and nine deaths.
