Union Minister for Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement Dr Win Myat Aye held a video conference with the national leading body on volunteers for training volunteers who will be assisting in the quarantine facilities.
The conference was attended by Deputy Minister U Soe Aung, national body member and MoHS Permanent Secretary Prof Dr Thet Khine Win and members, Myanmar Medical Association Chairman Prof Dr Htin Aung Saw and members and secretary office officials.
During the meeting, the Union Minister said quarantine is a central component of combating COVID-19 and that area will be assisted as best as it can. He said the role of volunteers in that aspect is important and the national leading body on volunteers was formed to increase the skills of volunteers.
The Union Minister said they are willing to provide safety, accommodation, food, travel assistance, adequate rest and recognition from the nation to the volunteers. He said MoHS, Ministry of Office of the Union Government, Ministry of Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement, and state/regional chief ministers and social affairs ministers will coordinate for this.
The Union Minister said they are compiling a list of volunteer trainers and doctors to teach the volunteers online. The meeting then continued with attendees explaining and discussing their respective sectors.—MNA (Translated by Zaw Htet Oo)
