Morobe PHA CEO Dr Kipas Binga

Residents complain of COVID testing fees

An employer advised the Morobe Provincial Health Authority that potential employees were being charged K10 each to get COVID-19 clearance; an amount that those seeking jobs cannot afford.

When asked about the issue, Morobe PHA CEO Dr Kipas Binga said citizens should not be charged any fee as we are still in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Of anything that is happening, and we don’t know about, and it’s improper then it should be reported to the appropriate authorities for action,” said Dr Binga.
