State of Disaster Order Declaration and lockdown for South Tarawa, Betio and Buota.

President Taneti Maamau had today delivered a press statement to update the public on the status of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in the country and what the Government is doing to protect public health. The President also announced several new actions that the Government is taking, since the lockdown of 22nd January 2022, to mitigate the spread of the virus including a lockdown for the Capital South Tarawa, Betio and Buota village in North Tarawa.

The State of Disaster for the whole of Kiribati was proclaimed to trigger further authorisation and access of necessary resources to manage the impact of COVID-19 in Kiribati including a curfew order for South Tarawa, Betio and Buota as the Government believes this would allow it to mitigate its further spread in these areas without hindrance or delay.

The increasing number of community cases on South Tarawa and Buota requires restricted movement to enable our frontliners to undertake contact tracing in the interests of public health and safety from COVID-19 and the State of Disaster is a key component of these efforts. The Ministry of Health and Medical Services (MHMS) can now confirm that there are now 23 COVID-19 positive cases outside border quarantine. The 36 passenger cases remain in border quarantine whilst the 23 are also in quarantine.

By declaring a State of Disaster, a number of actions are triggered by the President, including the zoning of areas to ensure people limit their access to shops for groceries and other essential services to their neighbourhoods and villages from 6am to 2pm. This alongside the curfew orders that were announced earlier remain in effect for South Tarawa, Betio and Buota only up to 6am 28 January 2022 unless another Order is issued before then and supersedes the current order.

The President reassured the public that travel from South Tarawa to Outer Islands is prohibited to control the spread of the virus. Residents of South Tarawa currently stranded on Outer Islands can return to South Tarawa. The Government is working closely with suppliers and service providers to facilitate the ongoing delivery of cargoes and supplies to Outer Islands in accordance to COVID-safe protocols of the MHMS.

The President also reminded the public to contact the toll free line 555 if they feel unwell with COVID-19 symptoms or visit the Tungaru Central Hospital with strict observance of SOP such as wearing of face masks, and social distancing. The public is urged to seek medical assistance and advice when needed at the earliest opportunity to prevent further complications.

President Maamau conveyed his acknowledgement of the tireless work of frontliners and the public’s patience and cooperation during this challenging time. The President also appealed to the public to restrict their movement to their bubbles or households. The President reaffirmed that accessing supplies from nearby shops can be made from 6am to 2pm and that this privilege is strictly limited for this purpose. The Government is working closely with wholesale suppliers, grocers and retailers to ensure shelves are replenished and residents of these lockdown locations have access to goods and supplies they need.

The President reiterated that the Government is tapping all available and necessary state resources to help manage this situation and added that united and working proactively and collaboratively we can respond and overcome this challenge and protect public health.

As conveyed in previous public announcements, a full dose of the COVID-19 vaccine is the best defender at present that can reduce risks of complications from COVID-19 and those who have not received their first and second doses should make the effort to get jabbed at the earliest possible. The vaccine protects us all if we are all vaccinated particularly those in our homes and communities who are more vulnerable to COVID-19.
