COVID-19: 82 Who Came In Contact With First Patient Urged To Come Forward

82 passengers who were in contact with Fiji’s first COVID-19 patient have yet to come forward.

Fiji’s first patient worked as a flight attendant on Fiji Airways.

He served three different flights: FJ 411 from Nadi to Auckland, FJ 410 from Auckland to Nadi and FJ 871 from San Francisco to Nadi.

Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama said out of the 359 passengers and crew, 277 have been contacted and have since either left the country or entered self-quarantine in Fiji.

They will be tested if they begin to display symptoms.

“82 passengers have yet to come forward, despite repeated attempts to contact them. While some may have left the country, it is vital we get all of these people accounted for. At the moment, they pose an unacceptable risk –– so we are enlisting your help to track them down,” Mr Bainimarama said.

Below is the list of names released by the Ministry of Health and Medical Services.

If you know one of these individuals, get them to call 221 9906 immediately ––  our containment efforts depend on each of these individuals making contact with the Ministry of Health and Medical Services.
