The Health Ministry's Permanent Secretary, Dr James Fong says conditions of isolation facilities may not be ideal in the early phase of containment as the disease is not predictable.
He has made this comment after confirming that they have received some complaints from people at isolation facilities.
Dr Fong says there were two incidents and one involved a baby who rolled off the bed at the isolation facility in Navua.
He says this happened when officials were trying to get a baby cot.
He says the baby was not adversely impacted because of what had happened.
Dr Fong also confirms the baby was brought to Suva but it was because of the symptoms of COVID-19 and not because of the fall.
Dr Fong says there was a complaint regarding the conditions at the isolation facility in Rakiraki.
He says this is being managed.
Dr Fong says they need to get more containment facilities upgraded quickly for use to ensure it is in a more ideal setup prior to a person going in.
He says this is a lesson they have learnt from Rakiraki.
