Waqainabete acknowledged the assistance provided by Cure Kids Fiji in Fiji’s efforts to remain COVID-19 contained.
He adds the machines are easy to use and do not pose any risk compared to cylinders.
The Ministry of Health now has 80 oxygen concentrators around remote health facilities in the country.
