A coordinating meeting was held yesterday at the Yangon Region Government office to address the ongoing severe diarrhoea outbreak and provide healthcare to the public. Yangon Region Chief Minister U Soe Thein delivered the opening remarks.
During the meeting, Director-General of the Public Health Department Dr Myint Myint Than outlined the healthcare activities undertaken within Yangon Region. Various officials then provided updates on their respective areas: Dr Thida Hla, Medical Superintendent of Yangon General Hospital, reported on patient recoveries and treatment conditions; Mayor U Bo Htay discussed the construction of fly-proof latrines and water distribution via tank trucks; and Social Affairs Minister U Htay Aung presented findings from field surveys and initiatives to educate the people at grassroots levels.
Senior medical officers and attendees deliberated on strategies to control the spread of the infectious disease. Chief Minister U Soe Thein urged officials at various levels — including village and ward administrations, township, and district-level departments — to disseminate knowledge through public addresses in schools, factories, workshops, monasteries, markets, and other crowded areas. He emphasized the importance of distributing leaflets and promoting awareness about preventive measures and prompt treatment. — Hsan Kyaw Oo (IPRD)/TMT
