“Papua New Guinea's relationship with China is being tested after Chinese workers came to PNG having been used in a Covid-19 vaccination trial.
“A China state-owned company running the Ramu Nickel mine in PNG revealed through its subsidiary last week it had vaccinated 48 Chinese employees against Covid-19 in a trial before they flew to the Pacific country.
“But PNG's government said it had not been informed, and is seeking answers from Beijing amid concern that dozens more people with the coronavirus in their system have slipped into the country as it struggles with a surge of Covid-19 cases.
“The Health Minister Jelta Wong said that if the shoe was on the other foot, China would be up in arms.”
