Covid-19 pandemic still imposes threats to global people. Various countries have been struggling to overcome the challenges of the pandemic since December 2019.
The first wave of the pandemic stunned Myanmar people, but we all could overcome the challenges in 2020. Soon after the first wave, severe impacts of the second wave terribly threatened the entire people of Myanmar in 2020 and 2021.
Before having a sigh, the third wave of pandemic sent fake and true information to us as the first and fast attacks. How can we respond to it?
The first and second waves of the pandemic ruined the majority of local and locally-based foreign businesses in the country, similar to that of other nations. At this juncture, we all should recognize the strenuous efforts of the government, the Tatmadaw and the united strengths of various kinds of associations that worked in concert to fight against the pandemic. Thanks to all, we can stand tall till today.
We have to rebuild ourselves to have capabilities for marching forward while overcoming the pandemics one after another, including the current Covid-19 and its variant types.
We must pour out vigorous efforts in doing many things such as giving doses of Covid-19 vaccine to the people on time, mobilizing the entire people to have more comprehensive health knowledge to prevent and contain the virus under the health guidelines issued by the Ministry of Health and Sports.
At present, a total of 131,945 patients infected by Covid-19 have so far recovered from their sufferings. So, they have been discharged from the hospitals, but more than 7,500 patients are still receiving medical treatment, according to the data of the Ministry of Health and Sports.
Up to 26 April 2021, heath institutes, including that of the Tatmadaw and the Ministry of Health and Sports, have conducted laboratory tests for virus infection for 2,568,811 cases, 142,740 of which showed positive signs as the confirmed cases.
As such, we all should not slow down the tempo and stamina in encountering the pandemic despite hearing the news on the outbreak of the pandemic’s third wave. We must pour out vigorous efforts in doing many things such as giving doses of Covid-19 vaccine to the people on time, mobilizing the entire people to have more comprehensive health knowledge to prevent and contain the virus under the health guidelines issued by the Ministry of Health and Sports.
Attention! Don’t give up on the third wave of the Covid-19 pandemic. We all make concerted efforts to overcome the pandemic challenges.
