MYANMAR, Feb 10, Eleven Media Group/ANN --Due to the spread of the deadly coronavirus in Wuhan, China, the Muse border gate separating Myanmar and China sees more Burmese returning.
About 10,000 people return to Myanmar a day.
U Thaung Tun from Muse Gayunar Social Organization said: “The inflow and outflow of people at the border gates is usual despite a decline in the number. China keeps its border gate open. Those who want to enter China have to fill in the document, wear face masks and undergo medical checkup. The number of people who enter China is relatively low. The number of people who return to Myanmar is higher. Three border gates receive the arrivals of more than 10,000 people a day.”
Heath staff and 14 social organizations are carrying out thermal screening on the people and the distribution of face masks, at Nandaw, Hsinphu and Manwane gates on China-Myanmar border.
