YANGON: Myanmar government has ordered all staff to return to work as usual starting on Monday (June 1), a government official told press briefing on Sunday (May 31).

"Due to the Covid19 outbreak, the government ordered half of the staff to stay at home in recent months," said Zaw Htay, spokesperson of the President's Office.

The offices must follow the health measures issued by the Ministry of Health and Sports, he said.

Meanwhile, basic education schools will be reopened in mid-July in the country.

"High schools will be prioritised and the middle and elementary schools will be reopened later," he said.

Myanmar has reported 224 confirmed COVID-19 cases with six deaths so far in the country.

The Myanmar government is planning to hold the fourth meeting of 21st Century Panglong Peace Conference by July, a government official said.

The Union Accord Part III will be signed at the fourth meeting of the peace conference and the accord will include three parts relating to framework agreement on the Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement (NCA) implementation, post-election activities and basic federal principles, a spokesperson said.

A total of 51 federal-related basic principles have been adopted into the union accord after the third conference. - XInhua/Asian News Network
