Myanmar orders Yangon stay at home from Monday

Sun, 20th Sep 2020 15:34

By Shoon Naing

YANGON, Sept 20 (Reuters) - Myanmar announced a stay-at-home
order for its biggest city Yangon after reporting a record daily
increase in new cases of COVID-19 on Sunday.

The order in Yangon, Myanmar's commercial capital, comes
into effect on Monday and will force all employees to work from
home. Schools were already closed under previous lockdown
measures.
The health ministry said on Sunday it had recorded 671 new
coronavirus cases, without saying where. Most of the recent new
infections have been in Yangon

Myanmar has so far reported a total 5,541 COVID-19 cases and
92 deaths. Infections have increased to hundreds of new cases
per day over the past weeks after the coronavirus resurfaced in
the western state of Rakhine, following weeks without a
confirmed domestic case.

Domestic airlines announced that services have been
suspended until the end of September.
