“As of last night, based on advice from the Health Department, Air Niugini has instructed its offices in Hong Kong, Manila and Singapore,” said Kaumu.

“Further, passengers are encouraged to use the quarantine setups in these airports. The airline will do further risk assessment tomorrow on the virus.”
