The rumour mills are once again churning out dirt as the nation once again has to deal with the possibility of community transmissions.

People are panicking as they feed on incorrect statements and comments especially on social media.

Acting Police Commissioner Rusiate Tudravu appealed to all Fijians that they must get information from credible sources and await official confirmation from the Government on any changes to COVID-19 restrictions.

“Please be reminded to continue practising social distancing as was highlighted by the Prime Minister, avoid large gatherings and practise COVID safe measures to ensure the virus is contained,” he said.

“Parents and guardians please monitor the whereabouts of your children, and do not forget to advise them about the COVID-19 restrictions that are currently in place.”

For those residing within the lockdown areas, ACP Tudravu said: “Please do not hesitate to contact the Divisional Police Commander West Senior Superintendent of Police [SSP] Sami Surend on 9906893 or the Western Division Command Centre on 9905457 if unsure of anything concerning the COVID-19 restrictions.”

“Please play your part and let’s beat COVID-19 together.”

The Fiji Sun newsroom got phone calls yesterday from people enquiring if areas in Suva were placed in lockdown and if people from Suva had been taken into isolation. Neither was true.

Meanwhile, hundreds of Police officers are now working within the lockdown area to ensure safety of the public and also ensure that the public follow directives which would ensure containment of the COVID threat.
