CORONAVIRUS UPDATE by His Excellency President Lionel Aingimea, MP Thursday, 23 June 2022



His Excellency President Lionel Aingimea, MP


Thursday, 23 June 2022


In today's update, His Excellency President Lionel Aingimea says the accumulative statistics as at end of Wednesday, 22 June, are as follows:

-             191 new cases

-             861 active cases

-             4,597 tests done this outbreak

-             three have left the Acute Care Unit (ACU); eight people remain in ACU for observation (including two maternity cases, one child is discharged to the quarantine facility and observed by nurses in quarantine.)

-             Everyone is stable and no-one is in a critical condition or needing a ventilator.


Cases are almost doubling every two days. Nineteen per cent or approximately one in five people tested are positive.


As at today, Thursday 23 June, 110 houses are in isolation/lockdown. Yesterday there were 75 houses.

Yaren 8; Boe 12; Aiwo 2; Buada 11; Denig 5; Nibok 3; Uaboe 11; Baitsi 6; Ewa 17; Anetan 10; Anabar 11; Ijuw 2; Anibare 2; Menen 10.


The number of people isolating at the government transit stations has reduced with some opting to isolate at home:

-          Budapest Transit Station: 50 people have opted to self-Isolate at home; 187 remain at the Budapest.

-          Menen Transit Station: 81 people have opted to self-isolate at home; 106 remain at the Menen.


A total of 293 are isolating at Budapest and Menen.

Special Isolation facilities are available for essential workers from health and police.


More vaccines will arrive to provide further doses for everyone who still requires their first two shots or missed out on the booster (3rd shot); as well as for the 4th dose.


If it has been four months since your last shot, the following are now eligible for their next dose:

-          All children aged 12-17 years can get the 3rd dose

-          50 years and older can get the 4th dose

-          4th dose also for 18-49 years who are:

o   frontline workers

o   have high risk comorbidity (having more than one illness)

o   people with disability


President Aingimea thanks the Government of Australia for funding the vaccines for children 5-11 years. The 6,600 doses arrived last night and will be available for this age group soon.


Health teams will set up a drive through vaccine station for this age group. Please listen to radio, TV and text blast announcements for roll-out times.


Children who have not been infected with COVID can be vaccinated ASAP. But if your child has been infected with COVID during this outbreak, they should wait three months (late September) before they can take their first dose then three to four weeks later for the second dose.


The President commends our health staff and frontline workers who are doing a great job and encourages that we offer them all our support and understanding so they can effectively do their work.


The kinds of assistance we can offer are to wear our masks, sanitise, avoid contact with other people, and limit our movements. We all need to act and do what we can to protect the vulnerable.


Do not be alarmed about the rising numbers, this is to be expected. We have prepared for a long time in the event that COVID reaches our community. We have a high vaccination rate in our community.


The Taskforce had set phases and protocols in place for actions to be taken for the different stages of community transmission. The drills, plans and protocols in place are to prepare us for this now.


We will eventually have to live with the virus as other countries have but in the meantime, we must follow our health protocols and maintain the rules in place of hand washing, wear masks, sanitise, avoid close contacts, and minimise movements.


There are still unrecorded cases out in the community. We need test results to help the Taskforce track where we are at in this outbreak.


We need everyone who has conducted home self-tests to call 192 to register your results, both positive and negative results.


You need to get tested if you have symptoms or are a close contact.


You do not need to get tested again after you have tested positive. Only register your positive result once.


If you are positive, at this time we ask you to isolate for 13 days and until you have had three days without symptoms before ending your isolation.  You can self-isolate at home but if you can't self-isolate or don't feel safe, you can request to isolate at the government quarantine accommodation where there are health staff and other support available.


At this time, if you are a close contact, we ask you to self-isolate at home for six days.

These isolation protocols may change and reduce as we go through the outbreak.


Due to the number of calls being received, 191 will sometimes be busy. Please keep calling this number and your call will be answered.


Call 192 to register your self-test results. These calls will not be charged.
