Dr Myo Aung, Chairman of Nay Pyi Taw Council, inspected the quarantine facilities for those who returned from foreign countries in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday.
The Nay Pyi Taw Council Chairman and party first visited the Zabuthiri Township’s Municipal Guest House No.1, which is one of the facilities for quarantining people who returned from foreign countries starting from 25 March. The facilities were prepared with the directives from Dr Myat Wunna Soe, Deputy Director-General of Public Health Department under the Ministry of Health and Sports.
Other facilities for 14-day quarantine in Nay Pyi Taw are a 50-bed hospital in Dekhinathiri, a 50-bed hospital in Pubbathiri, a 50-bed hospital in Zeyathiri, and New Aye Yar Hotel in Dekhinathiri. Those who returned before 25 March were quarantined at their homes.
At the quarantine facilities in Nay Pyi Taw, medical staff from the Public Health Department regularly checked the quarantined people’s body temperatures twice a day. Officials from the General Administration Department and volunteers were also fulfilling other requirements of the quarantined people, while members of the Naypyitaw Covid-19 Volunteer Team were managing the foods for the quarantined people.
Until 31 March, there were a total of 1,650 people arriving from foreign countries in the Nay Pyi Taw Union Territory. Out of them, 1,634 people were quarantined, one is a suspected case, and 15 were free from suspicion.
Out of the 1,634 quarantined people, 1,015 people were quarantined at their homes, 174 at hospitals, 18 at hotels, 424 at the municipal guest house, and three at schools.
Members of Nay Pyi Taw Covid-19 Control Team are regularly checking the quarantined people’s body temperatures at the facilities, inspecting them whether they follow the guidelines issued by the Ministry of Health and Sports, coordinating their requirements, and checking their health conditions.—Nay Pyi Taw (IPRD) (Translated by Kyaw Zin Tun)
