Awareness vital in fight against Covid in Bougainville

From , 6:01 am on 11 August 2020

In Bougainville, public awareness efforts have ramped up after confirmation of the region's first case of Covid-19.

On Friday, it was announced that a 22-year-old student tested positive after returning to Buka from Port Moresby.

It's bad timing for Bougainville as it heads to the polls this week for its five-yearly regional elections.
