SI Students in Fiji needs our prayers to stand against COVID-19
Leader of the opposition Mathew Wale commended the government’s stance to halt repatriation flights from Fiji and other countries that have recorded an outbreak on the delta variant of COVID-19.
Mr. Wale says the Solomon Islands has a weak health system, and an outbreak could be disastrous.
“The government policy to halt repatriation flights from High-risk countries is a good one. It is good for us to protect our country from this COVID-19 delta variant from entering the country or even in any quarantine center.”
He calls on the students and local citizens abroad to understand the situation and prioritize protecting the country from the Delta variant.
“It’s unfortunate for our citizens abroad and especially our students. But it’s a thing that families and everyone overseas need to understand this situation at hand.”
The Opposition Leader calls on all citizens to get vaccinated, pray for citizens abroad, and protect the country.
Meanwhile, Solomon Islands students studying in Fiji echoed similar sentiments, calling on all Solomon Islanders to support them in prayers as the delta variant of COVID-19 is increasing in Fiji.
A second-year student studying at the Fiji National University Jeremy Maeati told SIBC News, they are now at high risk of contracting the virus.
He assures everyone that they are complying with all COVID-19 measures to protect themselves from the virus.
“We have to abide by the in placed protocols so as not to get infected.”
Mr. Maeati advised parents and relatives not to panic but pray for their safety and protection.
