Myanmar has reported 9,991 confirmed cases of Covid-19 with 198 deaths in the country so far

A total of 525 people were arrested in Myanmar in a week for violating the Covid-19 rules, state-run media quoted Myanmar Police Force as saying on Sunday.

From September 19 to 25, the police charged 26 people for breaking the Covid-19 rules and filed 73 cases against 149 people for violating curfew across the country.

During the period, a total of 350 people who did not wear face masks in public were also arrested across the country under the Prevention and Control of Communicable Diseases Law.

The national-level Central Committee on Prevention, Control and Treatment of Covid-19 issued a nighttime curfew in some regions and states including Yangon region to contain the spread of Covid-19.

At present, some townships in Yangon, Mandalay, Bago, Ayeyarwaddy regions and Mon state are under the stay-at-home order as those townships have recently seen increasing numbers of Covid-19 cases.

Myanmar has reported 9,991 confirmed cases of Covid-19 with 198 deaths in the country so far, according to the latest figures released by the Ministry of Health and Sports.

Myanmar reported its first two Covid-19 cases on March 23.
