FNU Condemns Employee’s COVID-19 Claim

The Fiji National University has strongly condemned claims made by an employee urging Fijians not to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

In a Facebook video gone viral, Nanise Vucago, who is claiming to be a health inspector, said she has lodged a complaint at the Totogo Police Station.

Vice Chancellor Professor Toby Wilkinson said the university is aware of Ms Vucago’s factually misleading opinions and immediate and appropriate action has been taken to address it.

“As an institution of higher learning, FNU will always be guided by the facts. We reject all misinformation, unfounded conspiracy theories and fake news. We strongly encourage our community to adhere to public health advice and refer to reliable sources of information provided by the Ministry of Health and WHO,” Professor Wilkinson said.

“All members of FNU staff are reminded of their responsibility not to let their privately-held views influence their classroom teaching. Curriculum content must always be based on the full facts.

“FNU fully supports the public health measures introduced to combat COVID-19.”

Ms Vucago claims that the World Health Organisation (WHO) is not being transparent about the COVID-19 virus and the origins.

She said the vaccine that is being administered to citizens is not trialled appropriately and is being fast tracked.

“There is evidence that we are being lied to. The Ministry of Health and Medical Services does not question the WHO, but today I will. We have the right to question them,” Ms Vucago said.

“A lot of Fijians are being vaccinated when they should not be because they are scared.

“I would like to stop the vaccination programme in Fiji.

“Where is the autopsy for the four people who have died of COVID-19?”
