Families in the Serua / Namosi subdivision near Suva have been isolated since the outbreak was approved four days ago. Fiji Times reports.

One of them, Nancy Patricia, told the newspaper that she had given medicine and would not leave her home since she was discharged from the hospital.

Authorities are conducting a vaccination movement in the environment and are calling travelers to have vaccinations before leaving the country.

The government said there has been no new incident since the confirmation of three cases of measles last week.
