The Thai-Myanmar Friendship Bridge (1) in Myawady, Kayin State, will be temporarily closed for 14 days starting from 21 March, according to Kayin State Hluttaw representative U Thant Zin Aung of Myawady constituency 2.
The closure is a preventive measure against COVID-19 but friendship bridge (2) will still be open, said U Thant Zin Aung. He added that the closing period may be extended in the future but travel on the second bridge with temporary border passes and border passes will still be allowed. The move is meant to concentrate screening for the virus in one place.
Residents on both sides of the border can still travel on the friendship bridge (2) after being screened for body temperature and having a border pass. —Ye Kaung, Zaw Gyi (Translated by Zaw Htet Oo)
