Covid-19 was first detected in Myanmar on March 23 last year.
Meanwhile, about 88 per cent of basic education schools have reopened in Myanmar's regions and states since June 1, spokesperson of the State Administration Council told a press conference on Saturday.
As many as 42,080 out of over 47,000 schools in the country reopened and over 3.2 million students attended the schools as of June 10, Major General Zaw Min Tun said.
Schools and educational institutions had to shut down again across the country due to the increased number of Covid-19 infections after reopening for a while in late August 2020. - Xinhua
