The daughter of the hotel staff who worked as a maid and who contracted the virus while working in the quarantine facility has tested positive of COVID-19.

This was confirmed by Permanent Secretary for Health and Medical Services Dr James Fong at a press conference this afternoon.

“Due to her extensive exposure with the public, this hotel staff, and now her daughter, has been the central focus of our contact tracing,” Dr Fong said.

“Together, these two patients represent the highest-risk cases Fiji has ever contended with,” he said.
