Health Ministry's Head of Health Protection Doctor Aalisha Sahukhan.

The couple who returned to Fiji from India on 10th April and had tested positive for COVID-19 are still in isolation.

This has been confirmed by Health Ministry's Head of Health Protection Doctor Aalisha Sahukhan who says that so far the only people that have been released are the three recovered cases but the couple is still not discharged.

The soldier who was case 73 had contracted the virus from this couple.

Doctor Sahukhan says they will not be revealing any other information about the recovered patients as the last thing they want is for the communities to wait for them and victimise them even further.

She stressed that we are fighting the virus and not the people.
