YANGON (Xinhua): The Myanmar government is planning to draw a plan to provide prompt response to possible Covid-19 infection at internally displaced persons (IDP) camps in the country, state-run media reported Wednesday (March 25).

"Regarding the project, it is important to disseminate knowledge on prevention and control of the coronavirus infection not only to those living at the IDP camps but also for those taking administrative duty at the camps," Union Minister for Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement Win Myat Aye was quoted as saying at the ministry's coordination meeting on Tuesday.
