FIJI TIMES 12 March 2020 – French Polynesia has recorded its first Covid-19 coronavirus case.
President Edouard Fritch said the carrier was one of French Polynesia’s members of the French National Assembly, Maina Sage, who returned from Paris at the weekend.
She was at home in self-isolation, Mr Fritch said.
Reports say Ms Sage had met the French culture minister Franck Riester, who has also been infected.
Mr Fritch said before returning to Tahiti she had a medical check-up that showed no sign of the illness.
