People will not be allowed to leave the country for business trips for the time being.
This is after concerns were raised that the person who the soldier got COVID-19 from had recently returned from a business trip from India.
When questioned if Fiji will limit business trips or not, the Permanent Secretary for Health Dr James Fong has confirmed that at the moment people will only be allowed to travel for medical reasons.
Dr Fong says there are some outgoing flights that are granted on a case by case basis especially those who are going for medical treatment.
He has also confirmed that they have put some countries such as India on red zone.
Dr Fong says the only people they are not refusing are Fijians who are returning however they are currently being affected because the Ministry is reducing the number of flights coming in due to the outbreak. Source: FijiVillage News
