Tonga renews Covid-19 State of Emergency

The Government of Tonga has extended the Covid-19 State of Emergency declaration by another month to end on 22 November.

The extension was signed by Prime Minister Dr Pohiva Tu’i’onetoa.

The last declaration expired yesterday (Monday).

Although Tonga has not recorded any Covid-19 case since the pandemic was declared in March 2020, the virus remains a threat to the kingdom because of cases reported in countries nearby.

Tonga’s neighbours Australia, New Zealand and Fiji have active Covid-19 cases.
