In his address to the nation on Thursday, the Prime Minister of Fiji said no job, no job. Science tells how important the vaccine is to protect against corona. Now the government is deciding the policy on the basis of this. Those who do not get vaccinated should be prepared to lose their jobs.
Fiji’s health system has been adversely affected by the increasing outbreak of the coronavirus. It has ruined the economy. The government here is providing agricultural equipment and cash assistance to the unemployed. The first year of the pandemic did not have a significant impact in this Pacific country.
Only two patients died. However, two months ago, a delta form of the virus caused havoc. Corona in Fiji, which is a significant contributor to the economy, has adversely affected the economy by 19 percent. About half the jobs here are in the tourism sector. Fiji is known for its white sand beaches etc.
