The Papua New Guinea High Commission to Fiji are verifying claims of six Fijians living in PNG who may have contracted COVID-19.

Yesterday, Permanent Secretary Foreign Affairs Yogesh Karan confirmed receiving brief information that six Fijians in PNG have tested positive for coronavirus.

He is however waiting for confirmation. Meanwhile, the PNG First Secretary Head of Chancery, Jacinta Tony Barrion said they were in no position to provide direct information on the matter.

Ms Barrion, said they were closely liaising with Fiji’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs on the particulars.

Once feedback is received from Port Moresby authorities, Ms Barrion assured it will be communicated to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
