From , 3:02 pm on 10 July 2019

Samoa's Health Ministry says the Pacific Games visitor with malaria has now been released from care after two days of isolation and there is no reason to be concerned about spread of the disease.

The ministry's assistant chief executive for Public Health, Dr Robert Thomsen, told Jenny Meyer Samoa does not have malaria and quarantining the patient was a precautionary measure.
