The Free Bird Institute Limited has seen a drastic decline in students from the South Korean and Chinese market.

The English Learning institute says the flow from these markets have dropped by 65 percent in the first two months in comparison to the same period last year.

This is largely due to the rapid spread of the COVID-19 or coronavirus in these countries.

The institute says it is feeling the impact of Government’s recent travel restrictions as a result of the growing concerns in the rapid spread of the coronavirus.

However, despite this, the overall student roll for the first two months of the year has increased by 10% in comparison to the same period last year which is a direct result of the increase in the number of students from Japan which grew by 15%.

Executive Director Waisale Iowane says as a precautionary measure, FBL has requested students to provide a recent medical certificate prior to their departure from China and to self-quarantine themselves for 14 days upon arrival into Fiji at a hotel before they are allowed entry into the school premises.
