In the end, it’s the hapless Aussie taxpayer who funds Pixie, albeit not directly. What is it these days? $300+ million a year of aid money being Hoovered up each year.

You'd be naive to not realise that It's an investment that ultimately pays for Australia.

Conoravirus could see Papua New Guinea, Indonesia become failed states - ABC News analysis

The article ends with ..."PNG has been judged by some to be on the verge of being a failed state almost constantly since independence, but rumours of its demise never really materialised."

Well, for what ever reason, PNG together with PIXIE seem to just "tick along"

Hear that PNG have fared well with the virus with just a handful cases.
PNG is pretty isolated and doesn't receive many international visitors, once in the country it's not that easy to travel between towns and cities so they may have been lucky. However with the state of the health system they wouldn't know about it anyway. Hopefully a Chinese businessman didn't infect a hotel worker who went out to a bar and infected his friends, fingers crossed the virus stays out of the slums of Moresby and Lae.

Testing or a lack of will be a problem in determining the true Corona count in PNG, I fear that if it grabs hold there it could spread like wild fire as social distancing could proof difficult in a village environment.
There is also the problem of spitting Buai which will help the spread.
Fingers crossed for PNG this does not happen.
