In a statement, Mr Brown said the officers serving a one-year term in Liberia were in good health.

He said the Fijian contingent commander was in regular contact with officers at police headquarters, adding that the latest update from Liberia confirmed they were doing well.

He said if the peacekeepers were at risk of contracting the virus, the United Nations would be notified who would then notify the Fiji Police Force.
