All reported eight Covid-19 cases from Papua New Guinea have turned out negative.
The cases include the two adults and a child from Western Province, a woman from the Eastern Highlands Province, two adults from East New Britain, one from NCD and an expatriate at a mine site.
Dr Paison Dakulala said in a statement last night the woman from EHP and the three from Western have tested negative in their second tests and are awaiting their third tests before they are cleared.
While that is very encouraging news for Papua New Guinea he has stressed: “We must not relax but remain vigilant.”
“We are still seeing countries in other parts of the world as well as in our region reporting new cases,” he said.
He has appealed to everyone to continue adhering to the public health measures.
“It’s a challenge for our schools in many ways as they adhere to the new ‘normal’,” Dakulala said.
“Teachers and school boards of management need help from the parents and community to ensure children are safe.”
Most schools in the country begin formal classes today.
