There have been no suspected cases of Ebola reported by the Health Ministry so far.

Permanent secretary Dr James Fong confirmed to this newspaper there were no suspected cases of any international outbreaks of concern reported as yet.

“Not at the moment and hope never,” he said.

Earlier this week, Dr Fong in a press statement said the Ministry’s Fiji Centre for Disease Control (Fiji CDC) and Border Health Protection Unit (BHPU) were monitoring international outbreaks of concern, which included Ebola virus disease, Japanese Encephalitis, acute hepatitis, and monkeypox.

“Where appropriate, specific interventions have been put in place or strengthened in response.

“The situation will continue to be monitored, assessed, and responded to base on the available scientific evidence, best practice, and advice from expert authorities.”
