It is the responsibility of parents to monitor the whereabouts of their children - Police

Serious concerns are being raised regarding some parents who are still sending their children to shops and to do other errands without any masks.

People are asking why no action is being taken as these children can also contract COVID-19.

Save the Children Fiji CEO, Shairana Ali says Police need to monitor and take children who are not supervised to their parents.

She says some people are still not taking the measures seriously so the Police must act on those who do not comply with COVID-19 guidelines.

Ali says the gazette gives authorities the power to stop activities outside COVID-19 guidelines which must be enforced.

She says although children are less vulnerable to get COVID-19, they can transmit it to the vulnerable members of their family.

Ali urges everyone to adhere to the message given by Education Minister, Rosy Akbar.

She says the variant from India is more contagious and hence children must not engage themselves in sports with children from the neighbourhood.

Police Spokesperson, Savaira Tabua says they will not be everywhere and it is the responsibility of parents to monitor the whereabouts of their children.
