As of April 15, Myanmar has 74 confirmed cases and 4 deaths. Myanmar's initial response was limited to banning all public festivals and activities, and placing restrictions on those travelling from high-risk areas. After the first case on March 23, the government banned all international commercial flights until April 30, except for Myanmar nationals who are then subject to a 14-day quarantine at a designated facility. The state has also suspended all public transportation in several provinces. Yet, the major challenge for Myanmar is to protect the 350,000 displaced people across the country including those from the Rohingya crisis.
