Samoa PM, Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi
Prime Minister Tuilaepa has broken the news that a flight attendant was under surveillance quarantine for the coronavirus. Local media in Samoa is reporting that the flight attendant works for Samoa Airlines. Samoa still has no positive Cvoid-19 cases, after tests sent away came back negative. Twenty of those samples have all returned negative results, with only six waiting to be sent as they were done after the last plane flew out of the country following the closing of borders in Samoa and New Zealand.
