The two COVID-19 cases in isolation at the Vila Central Hospital (VCH) are to be retested to reconfirm their negative test results.
The health officials need to conduct a few extra tests to confirm the original result as part of the COVID-19 protocols to protect the population from further transmission, said the Director General (DG) of the Ministry of Health (MoH) and Spokesperson on all COVID-19 matters, Russel Tamata.
He said they want to run more tests to ensure there is no risk before the duo will be released from isolation.
Mr Tamata said the extra tests would not take long to be conducted.
Prime Minister (PM), Bob Loughman, is expected to provide an update on the status of COVID-19 cases once the additional tests are done.
The two cases are asymptomatic, which means that they are infected but developed no symptoms.
They are not residents or citizens. They came from Papua New Guinea and were on an official visit for work in Vanuatu.
