Myanmar extends coronavirus flight ban to May 31

Myanmar extended a ban on international commercial air traffic until the end of this month on Thursday (May 14) to curb the spread of coronavirus.

The ban, first introduced on March 30 and extended by decrees since then, would now extend from May 15 to May 31, according to a memo to airlines from the civil aviation department and signed by its director general U Aung Kyaw Tun.

The decision was made by the National Central Committee on Prevention, Control and Treatment of COVID-19, the memo said.

The country has recorded 181 cases of COVID-19 and six deaths as a direct result of the virus, according to data from the health ministry released on Thursday.

The government has imposed restrictions on movement, including a night curfew and semi-lockdown measures in parts of the country, and ordered factories to halt operations until receiving approvals from official health inspectors.
