Welcome to the Information Center for COVID-19 in Papua New Guinea

Hon. Timothy Masiu

It is with great pleasure that I present to you the Official Information Center for COVID-19 in Papua New Guinea (covid19.info.gov.pg). As many of you will be aware, our country, is now faced with a challenge of containing the Corona virus (referred to as COVID-19). In light of PNG moving into Code Orange (as per the PNG Preparedness and Response Plan for COVID-19) it is imperative that accurate and up-to-date information is disseminated to all citizens.

It is for this reason that, as Minister responsible for ICT, I felt it necessary to support the Ministry for Health to effectively coordinate information to all key stakeholders. This platform has been developed by the Department of ICT in coordination with the Department of Health and is intended to ensure a library of verified information is made available for public consumption.

I would like to encourage government agencies, NGO’s, Churches, and Communities to use website to keep our people fully aware. If in doubt, verify here! Before you share, verify here!.

Thank you and may our good Lord guide and blessed us and keep us resilient through these challenging times.



Hon. Timothy Masiu, MP
Minister for Communication & Information Technology
