State Counsellor reports on measures against COVID-19

Today, the most important thing I want to report to the people regarding COVID-19 is that the “Stay at home” order issued for certain townships is still in force; especially in Yangon. Just because we have given permission for some factories, workplaces, as well as factories and workplaces which are important for the economy in the long term, to resume operations if they abided by the rules and regulations that we have issued, does not mean that the “Stay at home” order is no longer in effect as some might think.

1. On this day, five years ago, the Union Government and the leaders of the EAOs (Ethnic Armed Organizations) signed the Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement. To achieve lasting peace, we have firmly resolved to complete the agreed tasks of the NCA together without fail, based on duty, responsibility and transparency. It could be said that we have walked on the NCA path on the road to peace for five years.

State Counsellor updates government measures against COVID-19 pandemic

I WANT to report about the COVID situation in Myanmar. As all of you know, the spread of COVID infections is, especially in Yangon. That is why we have issued strict “stay at home” rules and regulations in all townships in the Yangon region except Cocogyun. It is necessary to impose such restrictions. It is known to the majority of the people that the disease is spreading. Please don’t be too afraid because the disease is spreading. However, you all need to be very vigilant.

State Counsellor’s report to people about latest situation regarding outbreak of COVID-19 in Rakhine State

When matters important for our country happen, our Government believes that the most effective way is to report to the people and cooperate with the people. I am reporting based on this belief. As everyone knows, beginning from last week, the infection spread of COVID-19 in Sittway has been very rapid. Because of the rapid infection spread, anxieties and concerns have risen. I want you all to see this as a challenge. A challenge is not something to be feared. A challenge is something to be overcome. I believe that we can overcome this challenge as one of the efforts of the State. Because of the infection spread in Sittway, we had to impose restrictions to make sure that people from Sittway do not go out of Rakhine State. It is not because we wanted to impose controls and restrictions. We intend to provide protection. In providing protection, we are protecting the whole country as well. We are also protecting the people in Sittway as well as people in Northern Rakhine.
