Over 80 factories in Thilawa Special Economic Zone are operating as usual despite the Covid-19 pandemic, according to Dr Than Than Nwe, Secretary of the Thilawa SEZ Management Committee, state media reported.

The Thilawa SEZ Management Committee said that though the factories in the SEZ are running as usual, they are strictly following the instructions issued by the Office of the President, Ministry of Health and Sports, and Yangon Region Government.

The instructions include washing hands very often, staying at least three feet away from each other, and informing local health department if suspected Covid-19 patients are found, she added.
