Rakhine State’s government imposed a nighttime curfew in its capital, Sittwe, on Friday in response to the spread of coronavirus after seeing 19 COVID-19 cases in the township within six days.

The 19 cases, including a specialist doctor at the state’s general hospital, were spotted within six days from Sunday to Friday morning after no domestic transmissions for a month across Myanmar.
