2. According to the Ministry of Health and Sports, 5,409 people travelled from Rakhine State to Yangon Region by flights. Among those people, 2,622 were contacted by the ministry via phone, but only 1,574 people informed their nearest health centres, and the departments and the organizations concerned. The rest of those people could not be contacted and they failed to inform.
