Markets, schools and churches in the dusty Pacific city of Majuro are still crowded. The only coronavirus that arrived at this remote atoll was in the news bulletin.
None of the 53,000 people in the Marshall Islands, where Majuro is the capital, have been infected. But fear increased on the Pacific islands which make up nearly half of the 19 countries without reported infections.
“Everyone is on standby to cancel things and send everyone home,” said Giff Johnson Time from his office in Majuro when his staff worked in the island’s only newspaper.
“There’s a lot of fear and worry about coronavirus, people talk about it,” he said. “The level of consciousness increases.”
