Four New Border Quarantine COVID-19 Cases Recorded

The Ministry of  Health and Medical Services has announced four new border quarantine cases of COVID-19.

In a statement, the Ministry said these are Fijian citizens who arrived at Nadi airport on flight NZ 952 from Auckland on Thursday 26th November:

  • a 28-year-old female,
  • a 58-year-old male who had travelled from Kenya,
  • a 36-year-old male travelling from Mali,
  • and a 53-year-old male travelling from France.

As with previous border quarantine cases, these four new cases were under strict border quarantine conditions from the time the flight into Nadi landed.

This includes entering compulsory 14-day quarantine at a government-designated quarantine facility- supervised by the Republic of Fiji Military Forces and the Ministry of Health and Medical Services.

They are all in stable condition and have been transferred to the isolation unit at Lautoka hospital according to our standard protocol for confirmed cases.

With these new cases, we now have 7 active border quarantine cases. And as I continue to emphasize: As long as our border quarantine and isolation unit infection prevention control protocols are upheld, there is no risk to the Fijian public from these new border quarantine cases.

Now at 226 days without a local case of COVID-19 in our communities, we continue to support and commend our frontline border and isolation unit staff as they protect Fiji from the pandemic.

More information on COVID-19 in Fiji is available at the Ministry of Health and Medical Services website.
