We didn’t have money or enough food’: how COVID-19 affected Papua New Guinean fishing families
- In March 2020, Papua New Guinea went into a state of emergency to contain the spread of COVID-19. For Ahus Island — a small atoll community of around 600 people off the north coast of Manus Island — the state of emergency had far-reaching consequences. In July and August, we interviewed Ahus islanders about their experience of COVID-19, and what they did to cope. Their stories from the first six months of COVID-19 offer insight into the impacts of the pandemic on small-scale fishing communities and isolated islands.
