Officials are yet to release the result of the second sample sent on Saturday night to Auckland New Zealand.

The Prime Minister says on Sunday night during an exclusive interview with Radio Tonga, the result is expected to be confirmed yesterday, Monday March 9th.

The health Director Dr Siale ‘Akauola says the second sample sent was just to confirm that the outcome of the first sample sent to Melbourne Australia is negative.

The health Director is stressing good hygiene and for the public to be aware of the symptoms of COVID-19.
