Samoa High Commission monitors Fiji COVID-19 situation to minimise impact on students

In a statement, the high commission said it wants to try and minimize any negative impact of the lockdown on their students’ studies and their overall wellbeing.

A total of 84 Samoan students are registered at the two main universities – University of the South Pacific and Fiji National University.

Fiji has seen a resurgence in COVID-19 cases after 364 days since the last case was recorded in the community on 18 April 2020.

Fiji confirmed its first community case this year as a result of a breach in protocol at a Nadi quarantine facility.
