Members of the Fiji Emergency Medical Assessment Team will return to their respective homes today after serving in the Northern Division for 3 weeks after the devastation of TC Yasa.

The team was away from their families during Christmas and New Year.

The Assessment team worked with the National Disaster Management Office and the Commissioner Northern in carefully monitoring the health situation in the North.

Specialists from the team have officially handed over operations back to officials at Nabouwalu Hospital.

Minister for Health Dr Ifereimi Waqainabete says the team conducted a comprehensive visit when they were out in the field.

He says they had with them a doctor, health inspector, dietitian and nurse who were all equipped to provide health and medical services to the villages.

Dr Waqainabete had earlier confirmed that there are six cases of typhoid in Vanua Levu and they are working with the patients and their communities to keep this curtailed.

He says comprehensive screening has shown there are no other cases of Leptospirosis, Typhoid, Dengue and Diarrhoea.
