2021 Fiji – COVID-19 Outbreak

Over 27 days in June / July 2021, a joint deployment between AUSMAT & NZMAT (ANZMAT) deployed to Fiji in response to a request from the Fijian Government for COVID-19 outbreak support. Four NZMAT personnel worked alongside colleagues from Australia and Fiji to support the local Ministry of Health on COVID-19 strategies.
This deployment provided the added challenge of NZMAT personnel having to quarantine upon arrival in Fiji as well as upon their return to New Zealand.
