Six Chinese nationals refused entry into Samoa

The entire group of six Chinese nationals were reportedly refused entry into Samoa upon arrival on flight FJ 255 Nadi-Apia earlier in the day due to travel restrictions implemented by Samoa last week related to the 2019 novel coronavirus outbreak.

The group had transited through Nadi enroute to Apia on the same day via Hong Kong on flight FJ392.

It is not clear if the reportedly ill passengers was medically assessed or noted to be ill while being refused entry in Samoa.
