Colonel Onisivoro Covunisaqa’s visit was to see firsthand the wellbeing of the soldiers after the containment borders opened last weekend.
This was Colonel Covunisaqa’s first visit after being appointed as Commander Land Forces.
The trip is also an opportunity for the Commander to visit troops based at the Third Battalion Fiji Infantry Regiment Delta Company in
Lautoka and Echo Company in Nadi and share with them the importance of preparation as the country approaches the cyclone season.
Soldiers at the Nadi Emergency Operation Centre at Naulianano House and those at the six hotels used as quarantine facilities were reminded of the importance of their work at these sites as they assist the Health Ministry in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
He urged them to be mindful of their character towards civilians and everyone they work with.
