  1. I fear that Myanmar is in no way prepared for the Coronavirus. There are so many border crossings where people from China,Laos and Thailand can cross without being checked and even if someone is positive Myanmar lacks the proper facilities to contain or quarantine to stop the spread of the virus. What boggles one’s mind is that the neighboring countries are registering and reporting infected patients,mostly who had been in Wuhan,China. Myanmar is shown in the news as a country with no infections, almost like when the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami devastated the whole region.Myanmar stubbornly denied any death or casualties from the Tsunami then. It was much later admitted that the 2004 Tsunami did kill and destroy quite a large number of people in coastal villages.I presume it has something to do with the religious mentality, like such disasters happen to evil people and since the Myanmar (Govt) consider themselves to be perfect, nothing of the sort happens here.
