“There are no cases of Monkeypox reported in Madang.”
“The post on social media regarding the case that was reported on social media is false.” This is what the Madang Provincial Health Authority Director, Mr Martin Daimen said when he was interviewed by this newsroom.
Dr Daimen mentioned that so far there has been no word from the National Department of Health about monkeypox reaching our shores.
There are currently no measures on how the Provincial Health Authority will combat the disease. Meanwhile, attempts to get comments from the National Department of Health’s Disease Surveillance program, Mr Berry Ropa have been unsuccessful.
