Rugby players who were part of the Malomalo 7s on April 16 and 17 at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka could be a risk to the public as one of the recently confirmed positive case of coronavirus played in the tournament.

Permanent Secretary for Health Dr James Fong said the 25-year-old of Muanikoso represented a club at the two day meet.

He said they are working with the coaches at the tournament to contact players who may have had come into contact with the patient.

Dr Fong said they’ve contacted most of those he may have had contact with, however, there are still some missing pieces.

Any of the rugby players who played in the Malomalo Sevens and are yet to be contacted by the Ministry are urged to call 158.
