Permanent Secretary for Health, Doctor James Fong says the main priority of the Australian Medical Assistance Team coming in will be on creating additional medical spaces that can offer non-COVID care to patients and strengthen their infection control protocols.
Doctor Fong confirms the multi-disciplinary AUSMAT team has been deployed to Fiji to assist with the provision of health care services, primarily in the Central Division.
He says the AUSMAT team will deploy for 28-days starting next week.
Doctor Fong confirms the members of the deployment are all fully-vaccinated so they have amended the quarantine requirements to ten days to allow them to deploy quickly upon arrival to Fiji.
