Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has affirmed minutes back that the most recent case is of a 28-year-old male, who had come back from Australia throughout the end of the week and isn’t identified with the initial three cases.
He showed up in from Australia on Saturday.
He and his close relatives are all now in disconnection at the Navua Hospital.
Bainimarama says when the man left the flight, FJ 916 from Sydney to Nadi on Saturday, he was not indicating any side effects of COVID-19.
He says in any case, the man was exhorted by wellbeing authorities at the air terminal to go straight home and self-isolate for 14 days.
“It shows up this man of his word did everything right. He went from the air terminal directly to his level in Suva, where he promptly self-isolated. That Sunday night, while he was as yet self-isolated, he created mellow indications – an irritated throat, and afterward a hack. Perceiving the admonition indications of COVID-19, he reached the Ministry of Health by means of the devoted hotline, and a fast reaction group was promptly dispatched to his home, where he was inspected and tried. The patient at that point stayed in self-isolate until the test for COVID-19 brought positive back.”
The PM says after the test was affirmed, a rescue vehicle shipped the patient safely and cleanly to the Central Division separation ward at Navua Hospital.
“Separate ambulances at that point moved all individuals from his family unit to the Navua Hospital confinement ward, despite the fact that their contact with this patient was constrained and they presently show no indications. They all stay detached at the medical clinic, where they present zero dangers to general society.”
Bainimarama says there were 26 others on a similar flight and Fiji Airways was rehearsing safe separating on the plane, scattering travelers through their carefully authorized allocated seating.
“In light of those wellbeing measures, just a bunch of others – two different travelers and the three lodge group who overhauled his lodge – gambled introduction. In any case, every single other traveler stays in self-isolate for a 14-day time frame.”
He says while the danger of transmission from this case is low, the contact following groups are right now recognizing everyone in Fiji who may have had direct contact with the patient – down to the cab driver who drove him from Nadi Airport to Suva.
“Fiji Airways has just reported they are cutting their universal flights by 95%. This traveler was on one of the last flights from Sydney to get Fijians back home. From tomorrow, there will be not any more planned traveler Fiji Airways travel into or out of Fiji until further notification.”
Bainimarama says this case is totally different from the principal instance of COVID-19 that was identified in Lautoka.
“All things considered, the patient was demonstrating side effects and neglected to put himself in self-isolate. That is the motivation behind why we needed to secure the Lautoka limited territory. It is the reason the region will remain secured for in any event the following nine days. I need to emphasize once more: From all that we know up until this point, this new patient did everything right. He adhered to guidelines, he was taught on the indications, and – in particular – he was tireless in ensuring his friends and family.”
Lauding the man’s activities, the PM says unmistakably he thought about his family, thought about his locale, and thought about his nation, including his alert and energetic feeling of obligation remains conversely with the reckless conduct of others we’ve found in Fiji and around the globe.
Bainimarama says given this case is incomprehensibly not quite the same as our initial three cases, the Government won’t shut down movement into and out of Suva in a similar way that was required for the Lautoka bound region.
