When Samoa's Parliament resumed this morning, Speaker of the House, Leaupepe Toleafoa Faafisi, expressed condolences on behalf of Parliament to the families of the deceased.
He then called on the House to rise for a minute of silence for the victims.
Meanwhile, the state of emergency in Samoa, declared due to the epidemic, has been extended to 29 December, 2019.
Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi said it had been extended so as to administer vaccinations to the remaining population, who are yet to be immunised.
