There are currently 5 confirmed COVID-19 cases in Fiji. 

There have been no new cases since Wednesday 25 March.

As of Friday, 27 March, a total of 32 fever clinics have
been setup and are fully operational around the country as Fiji ramps up its
rapid response to COVID-19.

These clinics are operational from 8:00am until 4:00 pm
from Monday to Sunday and are based at strategic locations that can be
conveniently accessed by the members of the public.

In an effort to stop the spread of this virus, the Fijian
Ministry of Health and Medical Services is encouraging people to visit these
clinics should they have a fever or develop any symptoms of COVID-19.

People will not need to make any appointments with the
doctors and nurses in these clinics.

Establishment of fever clinics is an integral part of
Fijian Government’s effort to contain the spread of the virus.

This is also done to ensure that the vulnerable members
of the public are not exposed to the virus in regular hospitals/health centres.

Most of the Clinics are open from 8am-4pm, 7
days a week, with the exception of the following clinics: Punjas Health Centre
(Lautoka) and Kamikamica Health Centre (Lautoka) are open from 8am-10pm and the
Valelevu Health Centre in Nasinu is open 24 hours.

The Symptoms of COVID-19 include:

•          
fever

•          
flu-like symptoms such as coughing, sore throat or headaches; or

•          
difficulty breathing.

The Fijian Government remains on the highest level of
alert in response to this global pandemic. We know that finding cases early and
isolating them quickly is key to containing this disease. As the symptoms of
COVID-19 are very similar to many other respiratory illnesses (including the
common cold and influenza) it is expected that the Ministry will continue to
investigate more persons with relevant travel history and symptoms related to
COVID-19.
