Myanmar has locked down a village in Chin state where the country’s first confirmed coronavirus patient had stayed, while a second person who has tested positive was moved to an infectious disease hospital in Yangon, RFA reported.
The first confirmed case was a man traveling back from United States. The second confirmed case was a traveller from England who suspected that he had contracted the virus from someone at an official meeting he attended. A regional government minister who had contact with him has been ordered to remain in quarantine for 14 days, authorities said.
Health authorities have reported both patients appear to be in good condition but are still being monitored.
