Health services personnel are closely monitoring situations of 59 Myanmar students, who were brought back from Wuhan city of China, at the isolation rooms of Kandawnadi Hospital in Mandalay.
They arrived at Mandalay International Airport at 4 am yesterday.
Out of registered 63 Myanmar students in Wuhan, four students were left behind in China as one did not meet its immigration rules, another one was outside the province and the other two got a high fever and required to get medical treatments there.
Dr Than Than Myint, the head of Mandalay Region’s Public Health and Medical Services Department, said, “A medical superintendent from Mandalay General Hospital has been assigned at Kandawnadi Hospital, together with two nurses and two health workers, for providing medical services to these students. After 14 days, the students will be sent back to their homes. I’d like to request the public to report on seeing any ill persons or their illness to get medical treatment as Mandalay is a destination city of many Chinese visitors.”
U Zaw Tun Win, father of a student who was brought back from Wuhan, arrived in Mandalay from Yangon to welcome back her daughter.
“My daughter is a final year student at a medical university in Wuhan. I worried that she would be one of the four students left behind in China. But she could return to Myanmar,” U Zaw Tun Win said.
The Mandalay Region Government has formed a Surveillance and Response Team (SRT) to prevent Novel Coronavirus on 27 January, and it is taking prevention measures at routes into the city.— Min Htet Aung (Mandalay Sub-Printing House) (Translated by Aung Khin)
