COVID-19: 32 Fever Clinics Operational In Fiji

There are currently 5 confirmed COVID-19 cases in Fiji. There have been no new cases since Wednesday 25 March.

As of Friday, 27 March, a total of 32 fever clinics have been setup and are fully operational around the country as Fiji ramps up its rapid response to COVID-19.

These clinics are operational from 8:00 am until 4:00 pm from Monday to Sunday and are based at strategic locations that can be conveniently accessed by the members of the public.

In an effort to stop the spread of this virus, the Fijian Ministry of Health and Medical Services is encouraging people to visit these clinics should they have a fever or develop any symptoms of COVID-19.

People will not need to make any appointments with the doctors and nurses in these clinics.

Establishment of fever clinics is an integral part of Fijian Government’s effort to contain the spread of the virus.

This is also done to ensure that the vulnerable members of the public are not exposed to the virus in regular hospitals/health centres.

Most of the Clinics are open from 8am-4pm, 7 days a week, with the exception of the following clinics: Punjas Health Centre (Lautoka) and Kamikamica Health Centre (Lautoka) are open from 8am-10pm and the Valelevu Health Centre in Nasinu is open 24 hours.

The Symptoms of COVID-19 include:
• fever
• flu-like symptoms such as coughing, sore throat or headaches; or
• difficulty breathing.

The Fijian Government remains on the highest level of alert in response to this global pandemic. We know that finding cases early and isolating them quickly is key to containing this disease. As the symptoms of COVID-19 are very similar to many other respiratory illnesses (including the common cold and influenza) it is expected that the Ministry will continue to investigate more persons with relevant travel history and symptoms related to COVID-19.
