A TOTAL of 522 people quarantined have been released from the 821 that arrived during December 2020.

Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare said 299 remained and most of these will be released today and tomorrow.

In his weekly nation-wide address on Monday, Sogavare more than 140 arrived from Fiji on Sunday night including 9 from Kiribati, and that they will undergo their 14-day mandatory quarantine.

“Fellow Solomon Islanders, we currently operate 17 quarantine stations, 12 in Honiara and 5 in Western and Choiseul provinces,” Sogavare said.

“In addition, we also operate a few diplomatic quarantine stations,” he added.

“All these stations are managed by our camp management teams and our health teams provide daily health status checks.”

The Prime Minister commended front-liners for their continued dedication in the fight to protect Solomon Islands from Coronavirus (Covid-19).

“I also reiterate my call to the public to respect the rules of the quarantine stations. They are out of bounds for members of the public.

“Please wait patiently for the release of your loved ones and do not go to the quarantine stations,” Sogavare said.
