An ash cloud, caused by the volcanic eruption in Tonga on Saturday 15 January, forced a plane of the Caledonian company Aircalin to be diverted to Brisbane, Australia. The plane was travelling from Tokyo to New Caledonia. It was carrying passengers who had left France the day before. The passengers were taken care of on arrival in Australia and put up in a hotel while waiting for a new flight.

- Covid returns to Tahiti
The Covid-19 epidemic is back on the rise in French Polynesia. Sixty-six new cases were confirmed last week, according to Tahiti Infos. According to the health watch bulletin, the cases are mainly concentrated in Tahiti (46), then in the Tuamotus (11) and the Leeward Islands (6). The XBB.1.5 sub-variant, responsible for this upsurge, appears to be more contagious, but has so far caused very few serious cases.
