To date, New Zealand has given an estimated amount of $8m to Fiji in effort to contain the spread of the pandemic.

Health Minister Dr Ifereimi Waqainabete commends the assistance and says the machines will assist most of their frontline health workers.

Dr Waqainabete also confirms that the Ministry has so far tested over 4, 000 Fijians who may have shown some Coronavirus symptoms.

He adds Fiji proves to be one of the top countries to have a strong screening capacity as 99.6 percent of the tests returns negative.

The Minister also confirms that Fiji recorded an estimated 10 leptospirosis and 3 dengue fever cases in recent months.

The machines will be distributed to divisional hospitals across the country.
