Arrival of medical assistance from China yet to be confirmed

Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa, 30/03/2020

The government is yet to confirm whether they will allow an aircraft carrying medical assistance from China to arrive at the airport on Saturday.

The Health Director – Dr. Siale ‘Akauola says discussions are still underway to determine whether or not the aircraft will be allowed to land, given the strict conditions of the border closures BUT they are looking into enforcing strict conditions on the flight if it does arrive.

Borders have been closed to all international commercial flights and ships arriving in the country with the exception of a repatriation flight for Australian volunteers last week.
