Healthcare workers are latest casualties Two healthcare workers are the latest casualties of the deadly COVID19 virus that's rampant in Fiji.

Permanent Secretary for Health Dr James Fong said the 44-year-old woman tested positive for coronavirus while she was pregnant.

Dr Fong in a statement said the woman had other pregnancy-related complications apart from being tested positive for coronavirus.

He said delivery by caesarean section was done to facilitate the baby’s survival and the health worker's critical care.

“It is deeply saddening that I announce today the passing of a fellow health worker whom many of us knew and loved,” he said.

“She was 44 years old and was going through a pregnancy when she turned positive for the virus. Unfortunately, she also had other pregnancy-related complications.

“Delivery by caesarean section was done to facilitate the baby’s survival and our colleague’s critical care. Unfortunately, our colleague passed away on Wednesday.

“She died from complications of coronavirus despite the best efforts of the attending physicians. Her baby has recovered well and is in stable condition,” she said.

He said in the past weeks, a fellow doctor also succumbed to coronavirus.

“We may, unfortunately, see more of our fellow health workers and front liners get severe disease in the near future,” he said.

“Our sympathies are extended to all those who have lost loved ones and those who are living through anxiety and fear for loved ones during this difficult time.

“Please be assured that these suffering, have only served to strengthen our resolve to save lives. They also serve to strengthen us,” he said.

He said the virus will continue to affect health care workers from community transmission and through their course of duty.

“We know that community transmission in Suva-Nausori is at such a high level, that it is more likely that health carers will pick up the virus in the community than in the hospital,” he said.

He said the ministry is trying to ensure health carers are protected from coronavirus as best as possible.
