Fiji's Acting Permanent Secretary for the Ministry of Health and Medical Services, Dr James Fong, has confirmed that the two remaining COVID-19 patients that were in isolation at the Lautoka Hospital have been cleared of the virus and discharged.
He confirmed that as of Wednesday, there was no active case of the virus in the country.
“Today (Wednesday) is day one that we as a nation are without any active case of COVID-19,” Dr Fong said.
“The remaining two patients had been cleared on October 13 from the Lautoka isolation facility and as of today (Wednesday) there are no cases in isolation as they have all recovered and cleared.
“We are happy that we are finally able to discharge the last two cases on Monday.”
Dr Fong has requested the public to maintain vigilance and continue to adhere to COVID-19 State measures in place.
“We need to understand that the risk still remains but they are mitigated by our strong quarantine measures.
“Fiji still faces the threat of the introduction of COVID-19 into the country and in order for Fiji to survive we must allow our citizens to come back and we need to allow people who facilitate economic recovery to come back,” Dr Fong said.
