Fijians currently living in China are confirmed to be safe as the Fiji Embassy in Beijing monitors the situation after a massive outbreak of the Coronavirus in China.

The Fiji Embassy in Beijing confirms that as of now Fijian citizens including the students in Wuhan and other provinces have been contacted and there have been no reports of any Fijian affected by the Coronavirus.

According to a government statement, the Embassy continues to work with the relevant authorities in Beijing in ensuring the well-being of Fijians.

The Embassy has reached out to all the Fijians on a regular basis in providing them with information and updates on the current situation of the Coronavirus virus outbreak including all preventative measures that need to be taken such as limiting mobility and staying indoors in high-risk provinces such as Wuhan.

The Embassy says that at this stage no official confirmation has been released by the National Health Commission in China for the evacuation of people from Wuhan and any affected provinces.

The Fiji Embassy in Beijing is urging Fijians in China to take heed of the current precautionary measures as advised.

The Fijian government says contingency measures are also mapped out by the Fiji Embassy in Beijing should there be a need for evacuation.

The Embassy has also advised that the Fijian diaspora programs including the induction programs for new students have been deferred until further notice.
