28 August 2020
The Ministry of Health and Sports has recorded 628 confirmed cases of COVID-19, including 6 deaths, in Myanmar until 08:00 hrs on 28-8-2020.
There are 216 COVID-19 positive patients who are living in Sittway, Rakhine State, and travelled to/from Sittway between 16-8-2020 and 28-8-2020 up to 08:00 hrs.
To be able to control the outbreak of disease without delay, people who travelled to/from Sittway and other townships in Rakhine State with positive cases since 10-8-2020 need to report about it immediately of their own volition.
The checklist of Ministry of Transport and Communications has shown the data of passengers who took local flights from Rakhine State to Yangon during this period. They need to inform to the nearest health centres, relevant departments and organizations for undergoing medical examinations.
Only then they could receive medical treatments if they have been infected with the disease and could prevent further transmission to the family members and nearby people. They are advised to undergo medical tests.
Actions will be taken against those who failed to report on it under the Natural Disaster Management Law.
