Fiji Sun - - COVID-19 UPDATE - Ilai­jia Ravuwai

The Min­istry of Health and Med­i­cal Ser­vices is re­as­sur­ing the pub­lic that there is ad­e­quate sup­ply of med­i­cal stock avail­able at the Fiji Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal and

Bio­med­i­cal Ser­vices. There were also con­cerns raised by the pub­lic on the lack of an­tibi­otics and X-Ray films sup­plied at some health fa­cil­i­ties around the coun­try.

In a state­ment, the min­istry said: “Stocks for both items are on their shelves and the Fiji Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal &

Bio­med­i­cal Ser­vices are val­i­dat­ing the sup­plies with health fa­cil­i­ties to en­sure stocks are read­ily avail­able.”

Fiji Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal So­ci­ety Pres­i­dent Reenal Chand said they were manag­ing their stock, lim­it­ing sup­plies to cus­tomers so that they do not give it all at once.
