Have you heard about the virus called Coronavirus/COVID19?
Yes, I heard about it here at the market.
What is COVID19 and how do you get it?
They told us that the virus is spread through the air when we speak or when we share things with each other. We were told that if it comes to PNG it will kill many people. It is like TB.
Are you afraid of COVID19?
I am not afraid. God is with us, so we are living normally. We gather at the church, we shake hands we hug, it is all very normal.
How would you feel if I had COVID19 and I came and shook your hands?
I don’t know…
Who knows about COVID19? Who are the ones who will give you the right information?
We are not sure who knows. We only heard about the news of the lockdown. We are living normally [in my village]; all we can do is wash our hands and take good care of ourselves.
