Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has assured maritime islands with recorded COVID-19 cases that the government will support them every step of the way.
Bainimarama while speaking on the Radio Fiji One’s Nai Lalakai programme, says maritime islands including Kadavu, Beqa, Yasawa and Malolo which are fighting the COVID battle, should continue to help health officials trying to eradicate the virus.
He says the government is using all its resources to help the islands become COVID free once again.
“We know that unauthorized travel resulted in the spread of the virus to maritime islands, but we will never forget Fijians living in these areas. We will continue to support the work by the Health Officials to get this cleared.”
Bainimarama says maritime communities can support the MoH by staying home and avoiding unnecessary movement.
Kadavu has recorded a reduction in cases whereas more cases were identified in Beqa and Yasawa.
