In Brief

This In Brief captures the general perceptions and mood of a sample of Papua New Guineans during the state of emergency (SOE) imposed due to the COVID-19 pandemic in Papua New Guinea (PNG). A short questionnaire was sent to 19 Papua New Guineans using an online survey platform (Survey Monkey) during the height of the lockdown in mid-2020. This In Brief describes some of the measures taken by the PNG government in response to the pandemic and, through the survey, offers insights into the impact of the pandemic on citizens and how they interpreted the government’s measures.
