At the national level, an additional Covid-19 virus testing laboratory has been established here in Port Moresby. The PNG Institute of Medical Research (PNGIMR) have upgraded their Molecular Hub, which is located at our School of Medicine and Health Sciences, Taurama Campus, for Covid-19 laboratory testing in PNG. This additional laboratory testing will now be undertaken at the Molecular Hub to complement the PMGIMR facility located in Goroka.
