Fiji in grave COVID19 situation

Fiji in grave COVID19 situation “This outbreak is more serious than anything we’ve faced before.”

These were the words of the Permanent Secretary for Health Dr. James Fong while announcing the four new cases of coronavirus last night.

Dr. Fong said yesterday marks 30 days since this year’s first local coronavirus l case - the same period it took the Ministry for Health to contain last year’s outbreak.

He however said in the current scenario, it won't take 30 days to rid the virus completely.

“I’m telling you now, this outbreak is more serious than anything we’ve faced before as this will not be a 30-day war as the variant is more transmissible,” he said.

“The clusters of cases are larger and more widespread and I can sadly promise you that today will not be the last day that we announce new local cases.

“We may have found thousands of contacts, but it will take many more days of testing to know how many people may be positive and how our containment strategy must evolve in response.

“In the meantime, please do not leave your homes unless you need to get food, medicine, or other essential items. The threat is out there, please act accordingly.

“Don’t only act carefully just because we’ve told you to do so, do it because your life and the lives of those you love depend on it,” he said.

He said Fiji was heading into a new phase, a new normal that the rest of the world has embraced but the country is yet to fully adopt.

“We’re heading into a new phase, Fiji, a new normal that the rest of the world has embraced but that we are yet to fully adopt, we have to take careful steps.

“We have to maintain a constant state of vigilance. We must sustain our commitment to the measures we know can keep us safe,” he said.

He said everyone has to take the onus of containment as a society, not from the top-down, but from the grassroots.
