Peace Commission advisory member U Hla Maung Shwe said the RCSS discussed about taking body temperatures in about 30 areas. He said they gauged the temperature of about 60,000 people including that area. He said they discussed possible cooperation with the government negotiation representative group.
U Hla Maung Shwe said the RCSS agreed to the state level ceasefire in December 2011 and the Union level ceasefire in 2012 before signing the NCA in October 2015. He said they were negotiable and showed signs of better results for containing COVID-19. —Zaw Gyi
