With the coronavirus cases surging in Yangon, trucks which come from Yangon are not allowed to enter Magway city and the temporary terminal has been planned in the high school compound of Magyikan village, Magway Township to unload the goods, according to a supervision committee for private motor vehicles in Magway Region.
Magway Region bans highway buses to fight the COVID-19 resurgences starting from 14 September. However, a temporary truck terminal has been arranged for the movement of trucks and goods carriers from outside of the region.
“The temporary terminal was opened on 12 September, and after that, around 40 trucks arrived at the terminal in the morning of 14 September. The goods are unloaded there, and they are sent inside the city with other short-haul drivers. The trucks drivers from Yangon have to stay at a separate facility, and they are restricted to enter the city,” said U Myint Soe, chair of the committee.
Similarly, those short-haul drivers and assistants are also subjected to mandatory 14-day quarantine, in compliance with the health orders issued by the Ministry of Health and Sports. The committee ensures that those vehicles inside the town are to ply in line with health guidelines.— Zayyatu (Magway) (Translated by Ei Myat Mon)
