The Health Ministry's Chief Medical Advisor Doctor Jemesa Tudravu says health workers are able, committed and willing but the community needs to be willing to work with them to stop the spread of COVID-19.
Dr Tudravu says they are working with various government agencies and disciplinary forces but it will not be enough if they do not have the support from the community.
He says they have the staffing numbers to address the situation at hand.
Dr Tudravu says currently there are active cases in the hospitals, community isolation facilities and a group that is being looked after at home.
He says the CWM Hospital has now been designated as a COVID hospital which is very similar to what was done in the Lautoka Hospital when it was on lockdown.
Dr Tudravu says the FEMAT Field Hospital at the Vodafone Arena is now admitting and caring for non COVID cases.
He says in the last 24 hours, 4,708 individuals were screened with 512 swabbed.
Dr Tudravu says also in the last 24 hours 12, 346 individuals received their first dose of AstraZeneca vaccine while 136 received their second dose.
