Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama.

Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama says they are working with all stakeholders including the private sector to develop a long term containment strategy which upholds the health of every Fijian and instills confidence in our citizens, businesses and our international partners that Fiji is responsibly managing a return to normalcy.

Bainimarama says Fiji has gone 33 days without recording a new COVID-19 case.

The Prime Minister further says that makes us of the few countries on Earth poised to completely eradicate community-based transmission of COVID-19.

He adds but we cannot afford for our health protection measures to end as quickly as they were first introduced.

Bainimarama says as soon as they decide there is a manageable risk to resume recreational contact sports, he will let the people know.

Bainimarama adds when it is safe to do so, we will resume full scale sporting tournaments in a way that puts the well-being of fans and athletes first.
