A case of typhoid confirmed in Tongatapu

Tonga’s Ministry of Health has yesterday announced  a number of restrictions after a case of typhoid fever had been identified in the village of Vaini on Wednesday 12.

The case was announced with a warning regarding others’ risk.

Activities such as social gathering, feasting and drinking kava at Kava clubs are some of the events health officials say were included in the restrictions they enforced in the village.

Officials advised that people should make sure the food they eat are well cooked and make sure the water they drink are safe such as boiled water.

Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
