On May 23, two students’ organizations issued a statement saying that Internet vandalism and health negligence were crimes against the Rakhine people.
Rakhine Student Union In a statement issued by the two Arakanese Students Union (Universities – Yangon), the government did not heed the request for the internet to open. Currently, two Kawovik patients have been found in Thandwe and Rakhine State. Two of those who came back from Malaysia were diagnosed with the disease and should be given a Quarantine in Yangon. However, the direct delivery of the car to Arakan State was a poor management and could lead to further infections in Rakhine State.
“There are two people in Arakan now, both of them from Malaysia. They arrived in Malaysia but did not enter Quarantine in Yangon. If there is no virus in the area where health coverage is poor, there is a big problem, there is no such thing as war, there is a virus like this. : If it spread to the camps, it would reach hundreds of thousands. It’s easy to spread out in our state for a while. Also, health information is off. Management also has no Internet connection. In health, we have not developed much as much as in other areas of our health. This is a crime against the people, ”said Myo Min Thu, secretary of the Arakanese Student Union (Universities – Yangon).
Fighting between the Tatmadaw and the Arakan Army in Arakan State, with hundreds of thousands of IDPs, has been cut off by the government.
