YANGON: The Myanmar government has formed a coordination and cooperation committee to work with ethnic armed groups in the fight against Covid-19 (cornavirus), said an order issued by the President's Office on Tuesday (April 27).

The presidential order stressed that the government has been making strenuous efforts to adopt measures of prevention, control and treatment of Covid-19 without any discrimination on racial and religious grounds, based on a "No one left behind policy".

Chaired by Dr Tin Myo Win, vice chairman of the National Reconciliation and Peace Center, the four-member committee was formed with an aim to make the measures effective concerning prevention, control and treatment of Covid-19 in the areas where ethnic armed groups are residing, the order said.

The committee is assigned to exchange information related to Covid-19 and boost cooperation in monitoring returnees through the border gate, transferring patients if there are suspected Covid-19 cases and tracing contacts, among others.

The committee will conduct coordination and cooperation among ethnic armed groups, regional and state governments in the fight against the epidemic. - Xinhua/Asian News Network
