Australia leads way with vaccine boost for PNG and Timor-Leste

World Vision
April 12, 2021 – World Vision Australia (WVA) has welcomed the Australian Government’s ongoing support for Timor-Leste and Papua New Guinea, hailing its leadership and generosity as an example to the rest of the world.
World Vision Australia CEO Daniel Wordsworth said Australia continued to show that it is a generous and caring nation.
“We have seen a rapid increase in COVID-19 cases in Papua New Guinea. From only a handful of cases in January and February, to an alarming spike throughout March and into April,” Mr Wordsworth said.
“Very low testing rates coupled with high positive test results means we are looking at an increasingly dire situation right on Australia’s doorstop. We are also increasingly concerned about a spike in COVID-19 cases in Timor-Leste following the devastation of Cyclone Seroja.

MELBOURNE (Reuters) -Tropical cyclone Seroja strengthened off Western Australia on Sunday, with emergency services broadening a warning to immediately take shelter to several towns given high winds and the prospect of coastal flooding.
