New minister
A governor in the Mamose region has been recently boasting to his people that he is going to become the police minister in the next government “shake-up”. Fake news?
Set example
From a reader: Our leaders should be setting an example on keeping oneself safe and healthy in the face of the coronavirus pandemic. They can start by wearing masks when holding press conferences.
In it together
The coronavirus will not discriminate. It will hit boys and girls, men and women, young and old, rich and poor, famous and small men. So take care of your health.
Crowded prisons
When – not if – the coronavirus hits PNG, one of the biggest headaches is what to do with people living in the congested prison environment. Someone suggests that they be sent home, to return when the situation gets better. No way.
Cow urine
Hundreds of Hindu worshippers in India believe that cow urine will ward off the coronavirus. The group called the Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha (All India Hindu Union) hosted a urine-drinking party in Delhi last Saturday. A vaccine is yet to be found for covid-19.
Delayed flight
An American Airlines passenger delayed a flight to Nashville for over eight hours by joking about having the coronavirus. The flight set to depart 6.30 pm Saturday from Dallas claimed he had the deadly virus. He was later taken off the plane.
Food for thought
Some people will hurt you then act like you hurt them. They happen to be the ones closest to you.
Top quote
“Any reforms should be done in the current context of the Coronavirus, and the 2020 Budget should be ditched, Parliament recalled and a Supplementary Budget be introduced immediately.”
– Opposition Leader Belden Namah
