A doctor in America's northwest Arkansas is cautiously optimistic they are on top of the Covid-19 threat in the local Marshallese community.
That community has been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic with nearly 2,000 infected and 47 deaths from a population of just 15,000.
Sheldon Riklon, who is himself of Marshall Island heritage, is part of a taskforce that has been battling to turn figures around.
Dr Riklon said the latest information was that there was just one active case involving a Marshallese.
He said there was cautious optimism.
"There's other things happening in the community with the opening of schools and now with the flu season starting up - we are also concerned about that. It's been such a long process and time period that we are hoping that people continue to do what they need to do and not relax at this time."
