Papua New Guinea National Pandemic Controller David Manning has announced six more cases of COVID-19 in National Capital District (NCD).
 
This now brings the total cases for PNG up to 72.
 
Total active cases are 54 at this stage with three in critical condition while deaths remain at two.
 
Meanwhile, in light of surge in positive Covid-19 cases in the city, NCD COVID-19 Taskforce has laid down upgraded strategies to contain the further spread of Covid-19 following the recent upsurge in cases of Covid-19.
 
Responding to fake information on social media, taskforce chairman and NCD Governor Powes Parkop said Covid-19 pandemic is real.
 
“We must accept that it’s here. The sooner we accept and come to terms the better and faster we can respond and reduce and eliminate infection and transmission,” said Governor Parkop.
