THE Papua New Guinea University of Natural Resources and Environment (PNGUNRE) has launched the Coronavirus (Covid-19) awareness and will be taking the lead in distributing 5,000 copies of awareness booklets.
This was revealed by the pro vice-chancellor in charge of planning
and development Dr Livingstone Tavul.
Dr Tavul said the booklet was published by the Melanesian Foundation in consultation with senior medical lecturer Prof Glen Mola, Paradise Hospital, PNG Institute of Medical Research, the National Control Centre, University of PNG, Divine Word University, PNG medical doctors and the Australian government.
He said the information booklet was put together to clear misconceptions on social media about the Covid-19.
Dr Tavul encouraged students and staff to convey the right information on social media about the Covid-19 pandemic and vaccines.
He also encouraged the student and staff of the PNGUNRE to get vaccinated and urged them to remember that God had given the idea to people to create vaccines to help his people.
Dr Tavul said currently, three provinces of Western, West Sepik and Eastern Highlands were on lockdown for the safety of the people.
“If you don’t want to be vaccinated, it’s your right, but you must understand that you are selfish,” he said.
“You don’t know that when you are infected, it will affect your children, grandchildren and your relatives.”
