An aircraft has transported Lord Fusitu’a to a hospital in New Zealand today Sunday 4, a Ministry of Health source has confirmed to Kaniva news this evening.
It is understood the aircraft has been hired from New Zealand by the Tongan government.
As we reported yesterday, Lord Fusitu’a’s health condition was deteriorating and he was “very slim,” the source said.
The king’s noble was “on the ventilator“ at Vaiola’s intensive care unit.
As Kaniva news reported previously, the source said “He is very sick,” but gave no further details.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister ‘Akilisi Pohiva was admitted to hospital after suffering what our source said a light illness after he appeared to have been using a fan to cool himself off.
Reverend Sēmisi Kava visited Hon Pōhiva this afternoon.
He told Kaniva news the Prime Minister was fine and he was planning to travel to India this week for a meeting.
