PM Bainimarama said that Fiji has acted decisively to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus and our campaign has won incredible success.
“We locked down at-risk regions of the country, banned gatherings, implemented a nationwide curfew, closed high-risk businesses and health screened hundreds of thousands of Fijians,” PM Bainimarama said.
“As soon as we decide there’s a manageable risk to resuming recreational contact sports, I’ll be the one to let you know. And, when it’s safe to do so, we’ll resume full-scale sporting tournaments in a way that puts the well-being of our fans and athletes first.”
Meanwhile the Fiji Rugby Union today received a major boost to its transportation fleet with the donation of two brand new buses that will lighten their annual cost of transporting the women’s and men’s 7s and 15s teams to training tournaments.
