Stranded in Paradise: Kiwi worker chooses to stay in Marshall Islands


There's only one road on the largest of the Marshall Islands - and no way out. RNZ/SUPPLIED New Zealander Laura Freeman has chosen to stay in the Marshall Islands, which is so far free of Covid-19. It was surreal to watch the global pandemic unfold from the safety of the islands, Freeman said. There's really bad influenza here, there was rotavirus last year - so there's already lots of things they've been slammed with and had to deal with. A small isolation facility was being built at the College of the Marshall Islands campus, but Freeman said she did not think the Marshall Islands would ever be fully prepared if the virus hit.
