All the contacts of the garment factory worker have all been identified.

Ministry of Health and Medical Services permanent secretary Dr James Fong noted this during yesterday’s COVID-19 daily press briefing.

“As I mentioned yesterday (Friday, April 30), there are 877 contacts of case 113 – the garment factory worker – which are split between two factories: Lyndhurst and Mark One Apparel,” Dr Fong said.

“Our lockdown got off to a wet start last night, which did hinder our contact tracing and swabbing throughout Suva and Nausori, but we’re rapidly making up that ground,” he said.

“We have identified all 877 contacts of case 113, – these are individuals who travelled with her on the same bus and who worked with her in close proximity.”
