A report (F/T 25/9) says that .. The Ministry of Health is setting up an evolving multi-agency emergency contingency plan that will be implemented and used by the Border Control Unit at the Nadi and Nausori airports, and the Suva and Lautoka seaports in its bid to prevent the Ebola disease from entering Fiji. This is a positive move.
Just to add strength to this, please think of our other Customs ports - Savusavu, Rotuma and Levuka, private yachts also go there.
Furthermore a web site says ... "It could be the stuff of science fiction - a deadly disease that threatens the human race. Ebola in West Africa isn't yet on that blockbuster scale, but the world is beginning to worry. "
We have a group of people who go in and out of Fiji on a regular basis - our Fiji Airways flight attendants and flight crew.
Los Angeles and Hong Kong are two of Fiji Airways destinations which have flights coming in from Africa and Asian countries. How about we take precautions and vaccinate the flight attendants and crew, who knows which person they can come in contact with when they overnight at the two destinations and bring this deadly disease home.
Hepatitis B and E Bola vaccinations would save us lots of heartache, should one of them get affected.
Our mobile phone companies and internet providers are competing with each other to see who has the fastest speed in the delivery of services.
How fast is 4G may I ask as compared to 3G and 2G?
Anyway, with all these wireless networks speeding through the skies in Fiji, are they doing any kind of harm to birds and bees? Especially the flying fox that uses ultrasonic sound to find their way around.
Anyone can explain this please?
