Majuro COVID19 Community Transmission

August 8, 2022

Key Message from the RMI Office of the President

For Immediate Release 8 August 2022   Key Message from the Office of the President   “Iokwe and Greetings to All, Firstly, I wish to thank our Heavenly Father for blessing us with our beautiful island home, the Marshall Islands, for life and for good health.

I take this opportunity to pay utmost respect to you my fellow Marshallese citizens here in the Marshall Islands and as well all of you abroad. At this time, I have the duty to inform the general public that as of earlier this evening at 6:00 pm, the Ministry of Health has confirmed six cases of Covid-19 diagnosed here in Majuro. All cases are from individuals within the community and thus represent community transmission.

These individuals presented with mild symptoms e.g. sore throat, runny nose, etc. to the out-patient department of the Majuro Hospital.

Furthermore, while all cases notified today have been localized to Majuro, the MOHHS, however, cannot rule out the possibility of transmission outside of Majuro.

The National Conditional Level Red has been activated. This denotes a condition of community transmission of Covid-19.

 

The public should rest assured that the Ministry of Health & Human Services (MOHHS) and the whole government under the umbrella of the National Disaster Committee has been planning for this situation for some time. The MOHHS has already initiated the re-orientation of health services on Majuro to respond to this epidemiological situation and the various clusters under the NDC have also been activated.

As a containment measure, all travel to the Neighboring islands has been temporarily suspended. All members of the community are encouraged not to panic. Individuals who have been vaccinated and boosted typically experience mild symptoms and have significant protection against severe disease and death. General measures the public needs to employ include;  
  • Wearing face masks in public places both indoors and outdoors.
  • Practice good hand hygiene.
  • Avoid crowds and stay six feet away from others when in public.
  • Get vaccinated and boosted.
  • Access therapeutics (especially if advised by health professionals).

Alternative Care Sites will be established in the community around Majuro in the coming days. The sites will serve as community test and treat facilities, where individuals can access Covid-19 testing and treatment. Effective therapeutics are available and will be offered to individuals at a moderate to high risk of severe disease. Public cooperation is essential at this point in time.”

In a National Disaster Committee Meeting held in the early days of June 2022, a few weeks after the June registration link for the month of June was closed, it became apparent that the amount of people registered to return with in the month of June, was so much more than the amount of quarantine spaces in the RMI.

 

When the Registration Link for June came on 20th of May 2022, the STP working group saw a surge in registrations after the link was posted, forcing the team to close the registration link in just 4 hours. The surge in registration indicated that more people had registered than the amount of quarantine spaces available in Kwajalein and Majuro.

  The June overspill of registration issue was due to contributing factors such as that when someone registers, their completed forms also contained within it, a list of dependents that are to travel with the registeree, causing what looks like one registration form to actually contain 1 or more other people within the registration. As well, closure of previously used quarantine spaces in Kwajalein are now closed and not able to accommodate the usual amount of people as previous incoming STP groups.   With this, not all persons registered to arrive in June were able to be confirmed. Those 40-50 people were pushed back to the July STP group thus taking up the spaces for July’s incoming group.   People interested in entering the country in July will now have to register for the August STP group. Link for August Registration is anticipated to be released towards the end of July.   The NDC and Safe Travels Working Groups asks the public for continued support in ensuring safety for the RMIs communities.   Please visit https://ndmo.gov.mh/rmi-safe-travels-program/ for information on the RMI’s Safe Travels Program. //END//
