THE outbreak of the deadly virus in Honiara means it could already be spread to the Provinces.

This was confirmed by Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare in his latest press conference this afternoon.

Sogavare said it is of serious concern that some passengers from the vessel that arrived on 10th January 2022, have already travelled to other provinces including Noro, and to Santa Catalina in Makira Ulawa province.

“These people could already spread the virus to these provinces. Our health team is following the trails of these people to test them while also focussing efforts to contain the outbreak in Honiara and Ontong Java, “he said.

Sogavare also stressed that the captain of the vessel has also disembarked after arrival and attended a funeral somewhere on Guadalcanal.
