the COVID-19 infection rate is decreasing in Thanbyuzayet township, but people from the township are still undergoing medical treatment at their houses, according to the COVID-19 volunteer organization.
There were 1,088 COVID-19 patients in the township from 28 June to 31 July. The number dropped to only 321 COVID-19 confirmed patients from 1 August to 29 August, according to the report of the Ministry of Health. But many infected people and suspected patients are having medical treatment themselves at their houses, said a volunteer from Thanbyuzayet township.
“The infection and death rates have dropped. But it is not declined significantly. Some are treating themselves at their home covertly. Earlier, the hospital in Thanbyuzayet township was overcrowded and there is no space for the COVID-19 new patients. So, the hospital didn’t admit the patients with mild symptoms,” he added.
Some death cases were not registered by the Department of Public Health because they were undergoing treatment themselves at their houses. Most of the people had died of COVID-19 due to a lack of oxygen, he explained.
The medical teams have been formed, and they are providing health treatment for those who are getting ill and having a loss of smell in the township and nearest villages.
The new COVID-19 infection in the township dropped significantly. The Health Ministry reported 49 deaths from laboratory-confirmed patients from 28 June to 31 July and 61 deaths from 1 August to 29 August.
Mon state reported 11,329 COVID-19 cases with 1,032 deaths from 28 June to 29 August. — Aye Maung/GNLM
