Contract tracing is underway in Papua New Guinea's East New Britain province after the country's second confirmed Covid-19 case emerged.
The Controller of the country's State of Emergency, Police Commissioner David Manning, says everyone recently in contact with the 40 year old female will be isolated and tested.
Mr Manning said the Covid-19 Rapid Response Team flew from Port Moresby to the province late Tuesday with supplies and test kits.
A team of medical workers with the World Health Organisation and UNICEF also flew in to work on contact tracing.
Extra emergency measures have been issued: a lockdown of East New Britain's land and sea borders for three weeks from yesterday.
There were also restrictions on commercial flights, as well as shipping, in and out of East New Britain, with exceptions for cargo and health personnel.
Provincial authorities have sectioned off access to Kokopo district where the confirmed case lives. She was reportedly in isolation and had recovered.
