Fever Clinics now fully functional after TC Harold

Last Updated on 5 months by

Following heavy weather conditions brought by TC Harold throughout Fiji, the Ministry of Health and Medical Services advises that all fever clinics established around the country are now fully operational.

There are 37 Fever clinics now in operation seven days a week from 8am to 4pm at strategic locations throughout the country.

The Fijian Ministry of Health and Medical Services says all preventative measures were taken to ensure Fever clinics were not damaged by TC Harold.

It is vital for these fever clinics to be operational again, as they are key in identifying potential COVID-19 cases. Early presentation of suspected COVID-19 symptoms and identification of positive cases at fever clinics will put a stop to local transmission of the virus.

The Fijian Ministry of Health and Medical Services encourages members of the public to visit a Fever clinic if they are developing any symptoms of COVID-19 or have been in contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19.

At the Fever clinic, Fijians will have their temperature taken and symptoms checked. The symptoms of COVID-19 are a dry cough, fever and sore throat. Fijians will also be asked for travel history and other questions relevant to identifying a suspected COVID-19 case.

Health Care Workers will then decide which individuals will be referred for further testing and those to be referred to health centres for common colds and other ailments.
