Myanmar Closes Govt and Private High Schools Amid COVID-19 Surge

Due to a surge in COVID-19 transmissions in Myanmar, private high schools across the country will be temporarily closed from tomorrow (Thursday), according to the Basic Education Department’s deputy director-general, Dr. Tin Maung Win.

The closure came after Myanmar reported a record-breaking 100 positive cases on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning —with most of the cases in Rakhine State.
