Extension of Effective Period of Temporary Measures to Prevent Importation of COVID-19 to Myanmar through Air Travel

1. The Ministry of Health and Sports, with the approval of the National Central Committee for Prevention, Control and Treatment of COVID-19, has put in place on 29 March 2020 Temporary Measures to Prevent Importation of COVID-19 to Myanmar through Air Travel effective from 30 March 2020 2359 Hours MST up to 13 April 2020 2359 Hours MST.

A review of the Temp...orary Measures was carried out and it was found that most of the COVID-19 confirmed cases in Myanmar were imported through air travel prior to the introduction of the Temporary Measures or through local transmission of close contacts with these imported cases. Therefore, the Temporary Measures have proved to be effective in limiting the spread of COVID-19 in Myanmar.

3. In order to contain effectively the spread of COVID-19 in Myanmar during the early stage of the outbreak and to gain more time to implement effective preparedness and response measures, the Ministry of Health and Sports, with the approval of the National Central Committee for Prevention, Control and Treatment of COVID-19, is extending the effective period of the Temporary Measures to Prevent Importation of COVID-19 to Myanmar through Air Travel up to 30 April 2020 2359 Hours MST.
