Extensive discussions are taking place to create a mechanism for the many Fijians stuck in Viti Levu to return home.
Permanent Secretary for Health and Medical Services, Dr James Fong noted this during his COVID-19 update in a virtual press conference tonight.
Dr Fong said in many instances children have not seen their parents, wives and husbands have been separated.
“They want to go back home, I’m sure we all understand that,” Dr Fong said.
“The Ministry with MCTTT, Ministry of Maritime and Rural Affairs and Ministry of iTaukei Affairs have put together a number of protocols to ensure that the protocols of safe travel, including a proper 14 days of quarantine, are fully adhered to,” he said.
