Yangon urges people to stay at home during Thingyan holiday

The Yangon government on Friday urged people to stay at home during the 10-day Thingyan Festival holiday, except those who are involved in COVID-19 prevention, control and treatment activities.

The Yangon regional government committee on COVID-19 instructed officials of the 45 townships in the region to tell their constituents not to go outside from April 10 to 19, except when buying food and medicines.

Some of the township committee informed the residents within their areas using loud speakers.
