Permanent Secretary for Health Doctor James Fong says they are listening very closely to the story their screening and testing is telling them.
Doctor Fong says at the moment, no policy response is off the table –– including targeted lockdowns of certain areas and even a lockdown of the whole of Viti Levu.
He adds if this happens, it will be announced with a deliberate, well-informed, and detailed plan.
In just over two weeks, the Health Ministry has screened more than 317,000 Fijians through stationary and mobile screening operations.
Doctor Fong adds the speed and scale of their screening works well.
He adds they go door-to-door, checking for symptoms and confirming that people have not had close contact with COVID-positive patients.
