THE next high-risk repatriation flight is scheduled for February 7, 2021.
According to Dr Jimmie Rodgers, permanent secretary to Prime Minister, this repatriation flight is covered under the approval of cabinet last year and is labelled as a high-risk flight.
“The flight on the 7th of February 2021 is the final repatriation flight covered under the approval of cabinet last year and this flight particular repatriation flight is labeled as high risk.
“We labeled it as a high risk because it will take people from mix risk countries. Some will be from very high risk, some from high risk, some from moderate risk and so, that flight is named a high-risk flight,” Rodgers.
He adds all high-risk flights will be accommodated east side of the Mataniko river. That is part of the plan agreed to by the Oversight Committee.
“We cannot bring in high risk flights very regularly because we have limited accommodations on the east side of Mataniko river,” said Rodgers.
