The CWM Hospital in Suva will be limiting the number of visitors in a day due to a huge number of patients with the COVID-19 virus.
Permanent Secretary for Health Doctor James Fong says they are bringing back some of the restrictions that was in place during the height of COVID-19.
He says they are also endeavouring to increase in every hospital the appropriate COVID measures when interacting with patients.
Dr Fong says most patients at the CWM Hospital have tested positive for COVID but not admitted for COVID-19.
He adds what they are worried about is patient interaction could happen and this can cause a further transfer of disease to those who are more susceptible.
Dr Fong says to combat this issue, they have separated the ward from the positives and the negatives.
The Permanent Secretary says once the number of positive cases drop from the ward, they will start removing the mandates from the hospital.
He is urging all Fijians to get their booster dose because it will enable a person to fight off the severity of the disease.
