Schools will be closed until there are no more COVID-19 cases in Fiji.
This has been highlighted by Prime Minister, Voreqe Bainimarama during his visit to the island of Vatulele.
Bainimarama says one reason why schools are closed for a long period is that children can transmit this virus easily to their elders and this is why the government is always urging children to stay away from their elders.
He says this virus is similar to a tsunami where those that are fit can survive and those that are weak will perish.
The Prime Minister adds we are fortunate that the Health Ministry has done a good job in combating this virus, where no fatalities have been recorded.
He says Fiji had 18 cases of COVID-19, 15 patients have recovered and 3 are still admitted in isolation facilities.
School is expected to resume on the 15th of next month.
