Prime Minister, Voreqe Bainimarama says it is great news for people today as Fiji marks 180 days since the country has had a case of COVID-19 among the public.
Bainimarama has tweeted that we have also cleared the last two active border quarantine cases of COVID-19. The Tuvalu medical cases in quarantine have come back negative.
He says our secure border management meant none of the cases ever presented a public risk.
The Acting Permanent Secretary for Health Dr. James Fong speaking at the launch of the Care Fiji Committment.
Acting Permanent Secretary for Health Dr. James Fong says many people have been saying to him that Fiji’s borders are safe and why don’t you let loose.
While speaking at the launch of the Care Fiji Commitment, Dr Fong says he has told these people that as long as we engage in economic recovery we should accept that there will always be a risk. He says whether we like it or not, cases can come into the community.
Dr. Fong adds the risk exists because Fiji is a COVID contained country sitting around a big pandemic.
Dr. Fong adds for every COVID-19 case, they had screened another 356 people. He says it is a healthy ratio when compared to global numbers.
