Ministry Urges Informal Settlements In Containment Areas To Practice Safety Measures

Wednesday 28 April 2021 – The Ministry of Housing and Community Development is urging all residents living in Informal settlements in the containment areas along the  Nausori  - Suva to Lami corridor and between Nadi to Lautoka areas to practice  COVID 19 safety measures.


Given the extremely high number of informal settlements located in between these containment areas and the large number of Fijians residing in these settlements, the Ministry is concerned that in these settlements, the risk of spreading the COVID 19 virus would be high unless proper safety measures were followed.


Hon. Premila Kumar, Minister for Local Government, Housing and Community Development reiterated that residents in informal settlements need to understand the seriousness and the gravity of the situation currently faced due to the virus in the country.


“We cannot take risk of the virus spreading in the settlements as the consequences could be devastating,” Hon. Kumar stated.

 

The Ministry is concerned that the residents in some settlements are socialising with their neighbours over grog or just a talanoa session.
