June 18, 2019 12:40 pm

The Health Ministry is awaiting preliminary reports regarding the death of US Couple, David and Michelle Paul.

The Texas couple were in the country for a romantic trip and died in Nadi last month due to an illness.

Minister responsible, Dr Ifereimi Waqainabete says as reports come in – then they will be able to have further discussions on the matter.

He says they are leaving no stones unturned and are working closely with relevant stakeholders in investigating the couple’s death.

“We cannot speculate on what the results are going to be because we feel for the couple and the family for their lose. And it is in respect to them that the ethical values in which we adhere to that we must wait for the final results to come through before we can be able to discuss what it is.”

The Ministry had already ruled out influenza earlier this month for the two American nationals and there is no risk to the public.

Dr Waqainabete confirms locals who were also under evaluation following the couple’s death have been cleared.
