COVID-19: Urgent call for Lion Heart rugby team


An urgent call has been made out to members of the Lion Heart 7s rugby team that competed in the recent Malomalo 7s at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka last month to contact the COVID-19 health helpline.

Or any member of the public who knows someone who plays for this team is advised to do the same.

Ministry of Health and Medical Services permanent secretary Dr James Fong made the announcement this evening during the daily COVID-19 press briefing.

He said their contact tracing was progressing well elsewhere with the exception of this event.

The Malomalo 7s rugby tournament was held on April 16-17 and the Lion Heart’s team was not fully accounted for.

“This team – Lion Heart – shared a hostel and played with our case number 98, so it is vital we locate all of their players and any other persons who closely interacted or travelled with the team,” Dr Fong said.

“If you play for this team, or know someone who plays for this team, please call 158 right now.”
