YANGON, Nov 28 (Xinhua): The number of Covid-19 cases has risen to 521,211 in Myanmar after 505 new cases were reported in the past 24 hours, according to a release from the Ministry of Health on Saturday.

With 12 new deaths, the overall death toll in the country has increased to 19,079, the release said.

A total of 495,408 patients had been discharged from hospitals and over 5.5 million samples had been tested for Covid-19 as of Saturday.

Myanmar detected its first two Covid-19 cases on March 23 last year.

As of this week, over 11 million people had been fully vaccinated and over 4.7 million people have received the first jab of Covid-19 vaccines, the ministry's data showed.

Myanmar's Ministry of Health also had earlier lifted a stay-at-home order in 28 more townships after fewer Covid-19 cases were reported recently in the areas.

According to the ministry's announcement, the stay-at-home order will be removed in the townships of Nay Pyi Taw Union Territory, Kachin, Kayah, Kayin, Chin, Mon, Shan states, Magway and Mandalay regions starting on Thursday. - XInhua
