Teams continue to conduct mobile fever clinics and LTDD (leptospirosis, typhoid, dengue and diarrhoea ) awareness around the country. In efforts to access hard-to-reach communities and ensure no one is left behind, healthcare workers along with members of the disciplined forces trek through rough terrain and rivers in this combined COVID-19 and LTDD response.
Symptoms of LTDD and COVID-19 are similar and all Fijians are reminded to continue with good hygiene practices – wash your hands with soap and water, cough/sneeze into bent elbow and always keep 2m physical distance.
If you are feeling unwell with flu-like symptoms, PLEASE visit your nearest health facility. Look out for symptoms such as fever, headaches, body aches or cough.
