On 29 July 2021, the Southern Yap Water Authority in FSM received a drilling rig, air compressor, drill pipes and other materials for the deep well rehabilitation works planned under the UNDP Enhancing Disaster and Climate Resilience (EDCR) Project funded by Japan - The Government of Japan.

UNDP and the Water Authority will use the equipment and materials to rehabilitate seven wells in southern Yap, to help ensure sustained water supply and greater climate resilience in the face of drought.

🛣🚗 Ran annim, Lenwo, Kaselehlie, & Mogethin 🇫🇲. We’re thrilled that the people of Chuuk, Kosrae, Pohnpei, and Yap will receive a vital boost to their roads with the approval of a new US$40m project to help the Federated States of Micronesia improve the resilience of its road network.

Most of the FSM population – and the roads they use to get around – are near the coastline, making them vulnerable to storm surges, sea level rise, flooding and other natural disaster and climate-related challenges.

The FSM Prioritized Road Investment and Management Enhancements Project will help drive improvements to the way climate change is addressed in the road sector; ensuring year-round access to critical infrastructure and services for communities, and make travel safer and more reliable for all road users.

The project will also fund road safety initiatives 🚧 🛑🚦, and a program to help both improve access to drivers’ licenses and support technical employment opportunities for women 👷‍♀️👩🏼‍🦰 👩🏼‍💼.

Dear Yap HTCF chair,& Members;Palau is currently Covid free and there are a few of yapese who were Medically reffered here since last year.It was quite disappointing to learn that the HCTF approved for one person to be referred to Palau and then brought back to yap on PMA by himself.
Although that person chartered the PMA,I know that Yap has the funding,as well as FSM GOVERNMENT to foot the cost and bring home a lot more...
Since Palau is Covid free,You HCTF could have used the opportunity to practice your repatriation process on, NOT ONE....but few people.
Either the HCTF is corrupted and playing favortism...or the Yap State Government is corrupted and playing favortism perhaps bribed....

President Panuelo Appoints Jane Chigiyal to Serve as Chief of Staff
-----
PALIKIR, August 30th 2022 (FSMIS)—On August 29th, 2022, His Excellency David W. Panuelo—President of the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM)—appointed Jane Chigiyal to become his new Chief of Staff. Formerly the FSM’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations from late 2011 to late 2021, where she served under President Manny Mori, President Peter M. Christian, and President David W. Panuelo, Chief of Staff Chigiyal has a distinguished career in the FSM Government as a competent and capable diplomat and manager, with previous positions in the Department of Foreign Affairs including Deputy Secretary.

“It is an honor and privilege to be selected as President David W. Panuelo’s Chief of Staff for the remainder of this administration,” Chief of Staff Chigiyal said. “Given the many ongoing and forthcoming events and items of critical interest to the Nation and its citizens—including the forthcoming election of a new Vice President; the upcoming referendum on proposed amendments to the Constitution as a result of the FSM’s Fourth Constitutional Convention; and proposed legislation of significant interest to the Executive Branch for the Congress’ consideration, including legislation on developing a national marine spatial plan, permanently funding the Cyber-Security & Intelligence Bureau, and the Freedom of Information Act—there is a lot of work to be done, and my assurance to the Nation’s citizenry is that I will do my very best to ensure that the administration accomplishes as much as it can in the interest of our country and its people.”

The FSM National Government extends its appreciation to Chief of Staff Jane Chigiyal for her historical and contemporaneous service to the Nation and its citizens. The Government further extends its appreciation to Lorin S. Robert (the President’s Special Advisor on Foreign & Political Affairs) and Richard A. Clark (the President’s Press Secretary & Special Assistant), who both served as Acting Chief of Staff in the period between Chief of Staff Chigiyal’s appointment and the departure of the former Chief of Staff, Leo A. Falcam Jr., who serves as the FSM’s Chief Negotiator for the current round of negotiations regarding the Compact of Free Association, as Amended.

COVID-19 SitRep
-----
It is noteworthy that Yap State has confirmed 197 new cases, which is nearly one third of its cumulative total of 599 cases. Officials at Yap State Government advise that the youngest case was nine months old, and that the oldest case was a fully vaccinated 83 year old.

The States of Yap, Pohnpei, and Kosrae are fully open; there are no limitations on the number of disembarking passengers on any given flight. Persons who are aged five and up traveling to all states, including Yap, Pohnpei, and Kosrae, must be vaccinated against COVID-19.

The State of Chuuk will fully open on November 1st, but all flights prior to November 1st have a maximum of 66 passengers per flight. Chuuk's communities remain COVID-19 free. Persons arriving in Chuuk prior to November 1st can expect to be subjected to a state-mandated quarantine experience. Per Public Law 22-134 and its regulations, persons traveling to Chuuk are still required to obtain a negative PCR-based test result within 72 hours prior to their departure to Chuuk.

Per Public Law 22-134 and its regulations, as well as the President's decree on COVID-19 transmission in the community, the mask mandate for all persons in public places and the entertaining of five-days of restricted movement upon arrival in Yap, Pohnpei, and Kosrae remain in effect. However, as of August 30th, 2022, President David W. Panuelo has instructed the Department of Health & Social Affairs and the Department of Justice to determine which elements of the regulations and decree can be relaxed.

Officials at Yap State Government and Kosrae State Government advise that public schools in both states are open. Officials at Pohnpei State Government advise that public schools in Pohnpei are scheduled to open in September.

Governor Ralph DLG. Torres on Saturday, July 30, 2022, met virtually with Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) President David Panuelo to discuss matters of importance to FSM, the rising COVID-19 cases throughout FSM, and how the CNMI may assist in their COVID-19 response efforts.

Governor Torres informed President Panuelo that the CNMI is prepared to send 25,000 COVID-19 testing kits, as well as personal protective equipment (PPE) such as gowns, gloves, face masks, and hand sanitizers to FSM.

“I am glad that we are able to assist our brothers and sisters in FSM with these test kits and PPE. COVID-19 has greatly impacted our community, as well as communities around the world, and it is because of this that we understand how critical it is to implement preventative measures and utilize resources throughout a community to mitigate the virus’ spread,” said Governor Torres.

In the virtual meeting, President Panuelo extended his gratitude and appreciation for Governor Torres and the people of the CNMI for their assistance. Governor Torres informed President Panuelo of his commitment to providing further assistance, with the help of the CNMI COVID-19 Task Force, and ensuring that the test kits and supplies are sent to the people of FSM as soon as possible.

We're still in the process of fine-tuning these reports for readability and accessibility. With the interest of simply getting you the information quickly, and in a digestible fashion, I'm including some notes below on how to interpret the attached report.



First--the cases from Chuuk and Yap are reflective of previous repatriation flights. All of those cases were border cases, found and isolated in quarantine. Both Yap and Chuuk remain COVID-19 free in their communities.



Second--the term "hospitalization" in the attached report means "a person is positive for COVID-19 and is presently under medical care at a state or private hospital." This is the census number for all individuals in the hospital.



Third--the term "recovered" in the attached report means "a person who WAS under medical care at a state or private hospital is no longer positive for COVID-19 and has left the hospital's care." This is a cumulative number.



We intend to fine-tune the daily COVID-19 sitreps to the point where the above notes aren't necessary--but, for now, our belief is that the above clarifications may be valuable to you.



Below are additional updates for today, July 30th, 2022.

Two additional deaths were reported today, one in Pohnpei State and one in Kosrae State. I continue to remain unable to obtain the vaccination status and health profiles of hospitalized patients and deceased persons. I continue to be advised that officials at the FSM Government, Pohnpei State Government, and Kosrae State Government have similar difficulty.

President David W. Panuelo signed the regulations for Public Law 22-134 i.e. the Healthy Border Protection Act this afternoon. They are also attached to this email, one representing the regulation as it relates to the Department of Justice and one as it relates to the Department of Health & Social Affairs.

President David W. Panuelo received a request, in the form of a Joint Resolution, from Chuuk State's Legislative Branch (both its House of Representatives and its House of Senate), to limit the number of flights to Chuuk State to twice per month until October 31st, 2022, as well as to limit the number of persons who disembark into Chuuk so that returning persons can be quarantined. Chuuk State Government officials describe that their goals include to finish renovating their hospital; to complete the development of Test & Treatment sites; and to fully vaccinate vulnerable and/or at-risk population groups. Officials describe that the outbreak in Pohnpei and Kosrae has strengthened their resolve to keep Chuuk COVID-19 free until the Chuuk State Government believes it is prepared for a public health disaster to be immediately forthcoming. Officials describe that Senators in the FSM Congress representing Chuuk State were present for the discussions and deliberations that lead to the decision, in addition to mayors and traditional leaders. One official described that he had never seen Chuuk State so unified in anything until last night's discussions. Another official described that Chuuk State would welcome receipt of additional medicines, personal protection equipment, and manpower, when community transmission begins.

Prior to receipt of the Joint Resolution, but after learning it was forthcoming, President David W. Panuelo held a meeting with his Cabinet to again discuss Chuuk State's request, equally mindful that the law must be upheld while also soberingly cognizant that community transmission of COVID-19 in Chuuk State represents unique challenges. I am not yet aware of the FSM Government's intended response to the Joint Resolution, if any. I can confirm that the Joint Resolution is being thoroughly discussed.

The passengers of the MV Hapilmohol-2, which is the ship that departed Pohnpei State in order to return the Micronesia Expo's Yap delegation back to Yap State, have all been tested. Of 151 total persons onboard the vessel, 150 of them (i.e. all but one) tested positive for COVID-19. 117 of the 150 persons who tested positive on a PCR test also tested positive on an antigen test. The remaining 33 persons who were positive on a PCR test were tested negative on antigen tests. I am advised that persons who remain positive on both tests remain physically present onboard the MV Hapilmohol-2, and that those who are no longer actively infectious have been transferred to quarantine sites in Yap State. I am advised there remains discussion on how to categorize the cases from the MV Hapilmohol-2 and that it is plausible they will be updated in a forthcoming situation report under Yap State.

The Governor of Yap State, Jesse J. Salalu, is reportedly feeling normal. As of this email, he remains physically present in Pohnpei State. The Governor is scheduled to return to Yap State on August 2nd, pending a negative COVID-19 test result.

The FSM Banking Commissioner has informed the Office of the President that all banking institutions in Kosrae State have reopened. Kosrae State Government officials continue to report that Kosrae's operations remain normal. One Kosrae Government official reported that a fishing tournament took place today.

The Republic of Palau has generously donated medicines to the FSM, including Paxlovid for 750 persons; Bebtelovimab for 150 persons; Molnupiravir for 150 persons; Evusheld for 150 persons; and Remdesivir for 35 persons. I am advised by medical officials at the Department of Health & Social Affairs that these medicines are a combination of antivirals and monoclonal antibodies used for treating COVID-19. I am advised that there will be a 22-hour transit time from the Republic of Palau to Pohnpei State.

President David W. Panuelo spoke via Zoom with the Governor of the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Ralph DLG Torres, earlier this morning. Governor Torres offered to support the FSM, explicitly stating that he would be willing to expedite an immediate donation of approximately 25,000 rapid antigen tests, as well as personal protection equipment, medicines, and some level of manpower e.g. nurses. It is the intention of President Panuelo to graciously accept these very generous offers of assistance.

At the time of this email, I am not yet aware of the President signing a nation-wide social distancing decree. When the decree becomes signed and thus comes into effect, I will promulgate it widely.

This concludes the updates for tonight. There will be additional updates tomorrow evening.

COVID-19 Situation Report for July 26th, 2022

Notes from mass distribution list:

Below are additional updates for today, July 26th, 2022.

Officials at the Office of the President describe that Vice President Yosiwo P. George continues to improve, but remains in hospital.

Pohnpei State Hospital has announced it has ceased all outpatient activities and canceled all doctor appointments. I can confirm that multiple medical staff, at the national and state level, ranging from nurses to epidemiologists, are presently positive with COVID-19 and unable to work.

Concerns on losing the hospital and other infrastructure has prompted additional, and focused, discussion at the FSM Government on how to maintain critical infrastructure, e.g. logistics pipelines, medical-care facilities, power and water utilities, and communications. President David W. Panuelo instructed relevant departments to offer assistance to the FSM's states of Yap, Chuuk, Pohnpei, and Kosrae for this purpose.

The flight that was scheduled to bring the two U.S. CDC medical teams to Pohnpei State and Kosrae State today was canceled; the arrival of the teams has been rescheduled for later in the week.

Additional businesses have temporarily closed down of their own volition, citing concerns regarding the community spread of COVID-19. Banking institutions and other private businesses that perform essential societal functions have either closed, altered their hours of business to occur from 9am to 12pm, and/or limited the services that they provide. The majority of non-government organizations and diplomatic missions representing foreign governments are presently mandating their staff to either work from home and/or to only receive persons at their offices if an appointment is made in advance.

In at least two FSM Government departments, the bulk of senior officials (e.g. persons with the title of Assistant Secretary, who are often the head of a Division) are positive for COVID-19. Several FSM Government departments have implemented plans to allow work-from-home, and others have allowed persons who are asymptomatic or with mild symptoms to return to work so long as they wear masks. Lack of uniformity in this regard was discussed in a meeting between the Cabinet.

In a meeting between President David W. Panuelo and his Cabinet, the Department of Health & Social Affairs reported that the FSM possesses enough Paxlovid medicine for 21,000 persons. I am not able to confirm, or describe, how judiciously these medicines are, or are not, being used.

The meeting between President David W. Panuelo and the FSM Governors occurred, but the only states that were represented were the State of Kosrae and the State of Chuuk. The Governor of Yap, Jesse J. Salalu, was unable to attend due to being positive for COVID-19; he is in Pohnpei State and is isolating. The FSM Government received no reply from Pohnpei State Government. Chuuk State Government has requested to delay the opening of its borders beyond August 1st, 2022. The FSM Department of Justice's legal team met with their counterparts at Chuuk State Government today to discuss this issue. President David W. Panuelo spoke with Governor Alexander R. Narruhn on this issue. The purpose of Chuuk State's request is to accommodate the completion of Chuuk State Hospital's renovations, which are projected to be completed in November, 2022. A primary concern raised in a meeting between President David W. Panuelo and his Cabinet is whether or not the FSM Government's Executive Branch is able to do this--both in the legal sense (i.e. "is this lawful?"), and in the practical sense (i.e. "how would we execute the request effectively?")

The regulations for Public Law 22-134, i.e. the Healthy Border Protection Act, are due to be signed on or around July 30th, 2022, which will be followed by a formal Press Release describing the regulations. I am permitted to relay that it is the intent of President David W. Panuelo to address the Nation and its People sometime prior to the signing.

I can confirm having received, today, 37 unique messages and reports, from persons including FSM Government officials, Pohnpei State Government officials, friends, family, neighbors, and acquaintances in the private sector and civil society, describing that they witnessed overcrowding at Test & Treat sites either yesterday and/or today and, on that basis, described leaving the venue of their own accord without being tested. I am able to verify the authenticity of 11 of these reports, of which 9 were from FSM Government officials and/or contractors.

This concludes the updates for tonight. There will be additional updates tomorrow evening.
