COVID-19 measures

Hope for more govt transparency in Samoa on Covid-19 emergency measures

  Renee Kahukura-Iosefa said briefings have not happened during the Covid State of Emergency despite media requests.

"Samoa went into a state of emergency on March the 21st. From then until today pretty much we had no opportunity to be able to ask questions or get factual information directly from the Ministry of Health or directly from the director general," Renee Kahukura-Iosefa said.

Today's briefing was called by the ministry of health after the death of a recently returned seasonal worker from New Zealand.
