Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa, 24/01/2020

Discussions are still being held regarding Tonga’s course of action in response to the spread of the new virus that appeared in humans in Wuhan, China on 31 December 2019, and has since been named CoV2019, that to date has also claimed the lives of 18 in China.

In an interview with the Health Director earlier this week, Dr. Siale ‘Akauola said they were working closely with regional and international bodies monitoring the situation for the best way forward taking action to protect our people.

Meanwhile countries across the Pacific are monitoring their borders in an effort to stave off any cases of coronavirus.
