Staff manning isolation ward to be tested Staff looking after positive coronavirus patients at the Lautoka Hospital's isolation unit will also be tested for the virus.

Permanent Secretary for Health Dr James Fong said as a precautionary measure, all stafff of the ward will be tested.

Dr Fong said they have managed to identify 20 people who had direct contact with the two doctors who tested positive for coronavirus on Monday.

He in a press conference said they found the contacts very quickly as most people who the doctors came into contact with are doctors.

“Some of the other contacts are patients, given that they were seeking treatment for other ailments. We have identified these individuals as particularly high-risk,” he said.

“All of the patients who had direct contacts with the two doctors have been identified by the screening team swabbed, and entered into quarantine."

“None of the two doctors has been directly linked to other existing cases of coronavirus but our investigation is still in its early phase, and we are not ruling anything out.

“As a result we are also testing all the staff of the coronavirus isolation ward. I mentioned yesterday that both doctors have careFIJI installed and kept it running.

“So far, we have identified 20 close contacts through the app. We found these contacts very quickly. We did not need to publish lists of times and locations online to do so.

“Instead, the contract tracing app provided that information in a matter of minutes after the doctors uploaded their careFIJI information,” he said.

Dr Fong said some of these contacts may never have been identified through traditional contact tracing investigations.

“Ask any lawyer, police officer or judge and they’ll tell you that memory is an imperfect tool. People forget things all of the time but careFIJI does not forget,” he said.

“As long as everyone has the app installed and keeps their bluetooth turned on, it tells us exactly who has been near someone living with coronavirus.

He said the app does more than save time for health officials as it saves energy, resources and saves lives.
