Apia, SAMOA — Prime Minister Fiame Naomi Mata'afa has confirmed 25 of Samoa's front-line workers on the wharf have been isolated when four crew members of a cargo vessel had tested positive for Covid-19 upon arriving in American Samoa.

Samoa was the last place they docked, on 1st March.

This was announced by the Prime Minister in an interview with Government owned newspaper Savali over the weekend.

She said the American Samoa Government relayed this information to Samoa, after the crew members arrived in the US territory and had tested positive.

The Prime Minister explained that crew members from cargo vessels normally do not interact with front-linters, except for health workers.

However. as part of precautionary measures, the Government has opted to isolate them for two weeks, to eliminate any chance of the community transmission to protect the people of Samoa.
