These hospitals will link with other health facilities in Lautoka, Nadi and Ba hospitals.
A team from the office of the Commissioner Western worked late into the night yesterday to set-up the FEMAT tent in Lautoka.
He further says the Kamikamica Health Centre in Lautoka is temporarily closed for decontamination adding that the Punjas Health Centre is now operational for 24 hours while the Viseisei Health Centre is also operational.
