The Micronesia president said the first Covid-19 case came from a crewman on a government ship “Chief Mailo”, which had been in the Philippines undergoing repairs.
“We remain in what we call Covid-condition-four, which means that schools, churches, and businesses of all kinds are still open,” he added.
“Do not panic because the situation is contained.”
