Covid-19 tally in New Caledonia up at 14
6:06 pm GMT+12, 25/03/2020, New Caledonia

Another four people in New Caledonia were confirmed to carry the Covid-19 virus on Wednesday, raising the tally within one week to 14.
 
The government said all four cases were imported without elaborating.
 
The more restrained communication policy has been prompted by reports that death threats had been made against those infected.
 
An initial assessment shows that restrictions on movement imposed for two weeks have been largely followed, with more than 3000 checks being made.
 
Breaches will incur a fine of US$800 for a first offence.
 
Anyone deliberately flouting the restrictions risks being charged with endangering another person's life and could be jailed for a year.
