Soldiers did not take COVID19 to Solomons Republic of Fiji Military Forces Commander Major General Ro Jone Kalouniwai says no military personnel was the cause of the coronavirus outbreak in the Solomon Islands.

Kalouniwai in an interview said military personnel were being swabbed for coronavirus and their results had returned negative.

His comments after the Solomon Star newspaper claimed that foreign troops never went through adequate quarantine requirements before they were deployed into Honiara.

 He said it was mandatory by the health ministry for soldiers to be swabbed for coronavirus before being deployed.

 “I need to make something clear, all our taskforce military personnel that were deployed to the Solomon Islands were PCR tested before they left,” he said.

“They have gone through the PCR test and they went through the normal procedure for any deployments that were going out of the country.

“It is a mandatory requirement by the Ministry of Health and Medical Services in Fiji, ATS, AFL and Nadi International Airport departure.

“Now the results that we got out of it were shared by our movement control team through the Australian Defense Force mobile air loading team.

“This is all done prior to boarding so that the check-in can be verified. In this case, all the negative results were verified and checked by the airport staff,” he said.

He said the troops went into quarantine with members of the Australian Defence Force at Henderson Field in the Solomon Islands.

“The troops were released from quarantine by the Solomon Islands health ministry and Police after they had returned negative tests during the completion of their quarantine,” he said.

“I have documentation proof here to confirm that every one of them had been tested negative when released from quarantine.”

 “Before the outbreak, they had been organising a sports function for the communities, they assisted in house construction, cleaning up the cemetery of the ex-servicemen there.

Kalouniwai said 36 military personnel have returned while 14 remained at the request of the Solomon Islands Government.
