On December 21, Myanmar ordered the closure of public gardens, parks and a lake in Yangon, the largest city in Myanmar. These measures are undertaken as part of COVID-19 containment measures.
“We have seen some people do some extreme celebrations at New Year. And we think the crowd would get bigger for celebrations this year,” city administrator Myo Kyi said.
“We are so nervous of infections from the crowd because Myanmar is just about to control the infections.”
