A total of 13 patients who were diagnosed with typhoid on Moturiki Island have been treated with the required medical care and the Public Health Team continues to monitor the situation.

The health team has taken prompt action to assist the communities in terms of strengthening the clinical management in accordance with the National Typhoid Guideline, with technical assistance provided by the Fiji Centre for the Communicable Diseases Control (FCCD) Office.

The Public Health Team based at the Levuka Hospital is working with the communities on Moturiki Island to create awareness and facilitate counselling on the precautionary measures which include safe water, sanitation and hygiene.

The Ministry has also distributed hand washing and safe water storage kits.

Mass gatherings have been temporarily suspended in the hot spot areas.

All positive cases have been informed of their status and counselled on the required preventative measures.
