Share the News

Seventy-four health workers in Morobe have been isolated after coming into contact with a 35-year-old NDOH officer who tested positive with COVID-19.

The officer arrived on Sunday from Port Moresby to attend a workshop and became ill on Monday.

Angau Hospital CEO, Dr. Kipas Binga, said this morning, the 74 workers have not shown any symptoms but will be tested.

“The officer is a National Department of Health worker.  He arrived on a PX106 flight from Port Moresby.

“We have also asked Air Niugini to give us the list of passengers so that we can track down passengers.

“Hotel workers face a very low risk because they were not in direct contact with the patient.

“This is an imported case. We do not have community transmission. People should not panic.”
