The Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama labelled such actions irresponsible, un-Fijian and just plain stupid.

Mr Bainimarama identified one such case: “One of them was coming in from Singapore and had a high-risk of exposure to the virus while overseas. After reports he was breaking quarantine, he was actually brought into the hospital in Sigatoka –– and then he bolted and disappeared, forcing our Police officers to track him down.

“It doesn’t matter how famous you are, it doesn’t matter how rich you are, it doesn’t even matter how religious you feel you are. No one has the magic cure to coronavirus, and no one is immune to our laws.”
