The Health Ministry’s Chief Medical Advisor Doctor Jemesa Tudravu says they anticipate the Fiji Emergency Medical Assistance Team Field Hospitals at the old Government Supplies building in Natokowaqa and Nadovu Park in Lautoka to be operational today.

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.

Doctor Tudravu highlighted that the FEMAT Teams are on standby to help the Punjas Health Centre.

He says the Viseisei Health Centre continues to care for pregnant mothers and from Thursday to yesterday they delivered 10 babies.

He has reminded people who go to the health centres that they will be swabbed.

Doctor Tudravu says the Raiwaqa Health Centre will be decontaminated and they expect to re-open it by tomorrow.
