Manning says while the country slowly continues to relax state of emergency restrictions, he reminds everyone to follow all health and hygiene protocols because the coronavirus is present around the world, FM100 reported.
 
Manning says the statistics are alarming and draws attention to the fact when PNG entered the state of emergency on March 24, there were 372,755 confirmed cases and 16,231 deaths.
 
But after 52 days, there were 4,425,131 confirmed cases and 297,247 deaths.
 
"This is an increase of over four million confirmed cases and 281,503 deaths in just 52 days, so I urge you all not to be complacent," he said.
