The COVID-19 cases in PNG have risen to 114 after three more new cases record yesterday, two in Port Moresby and one in Kuinga in the North Fly in Western Province. Consequently, all schools in Central have suspended classes for the duration of the lockdown, similar to schools in the National Capital District, says provincial controller Francis Koaba.
He said it was in response to the recent hike in the Covid-19 cases in Port Moresby.
