Woman in PNG still waiting for COVID test results three weeks later

Caritas Australia County Representative for PNG Diane Unagi told Sky News she suspects a recent illness may have been COVID-19 but is still waiting for her test results three weeks later. “With the ongoing challenges we are facing in the country, I had my test three weeks ago and I’m still waiting for the result,” she said. “I have recovered from being sick, but I think that just goes to show the challenges that we have with testing and confirming cases … in the country”. Ms Unagi said her whole family was sick but underlying health conditions made her illness more severe and left her short of breath. “Even when we tried calling the ambulance, we couldn’t get a response,” she said. “Going through that experience helped me to realise the challenges that we have as a country”.
