Lautoka Hospital.

The Permanent Secretary for Health Doctor James Fong says they will continue to create more capacity to get more isolation facilities in the community.

He says they still have room capacity at the Lautoka Hospital and they have created reserve capacity in the Ba Hospital for the purpose of taking extra isolation cases.

Doctor Fong adds they have space at the Navua Hospital but do not want to add more patients so they have opened the isolation facility in Colo-i-Suva.

The Permanent Secretary says he also knows that they have opened up Adi Cakobau School to be an isolation facility.

He stresses that all their isolation facilities are manned by the appropriate staff.

Doctor Fong says they discussed this morning and will discuss again tomorrow morning further plans about creating their surge capacity.

He adds they plan to stay 50 beds ahead of the last patient.
