Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama

Prime Minister, Voreqe Bainimarama has announced a nationwide curfew from 10pm to 5am every night from Monday, March 30th.

Bainimarama says too many Fijians seem to think when the sun goes down, the rule on non non-essential travel and other measures stop.

He says this is for everywhere in Fiji and further announcements will be made soon.

Bainimarama stresses that there is far too much risk of socialising and unnecessary travel between 10pm to 5am.

He says if you are out during these hours unless it’s for work or another life-sustaining purpose, Police will direct you straight home.

The government will announce the full details of this curfew soon.

Meanwhile, Bainimarama says the Lautoka confined area is on total lockdown, cruise ships are banned, gatherings of 20 or more people are banned and the elderly and children should stay at home.

Bainimarama says while most of the Fijians are fast asleep the COVID-19 team at the Ministry of Health is starting their day working to spearhead the response and containment efforts.
