COVID-19: Public health services are collapsing in post-coup Myanmar
COVID cases peaked last month in Myanmar, but the country is hardly out in the clear – with up to 4,000 cases reported daily and a total of more than 340,000 cases and over 12,000 deaths. The pandemic is not only stretching medics to the limit, but also those who have the grim job of collecting bodies.
Public health services are collapsing in Myanmar. The UN estimates that only 40% of Myanmar's healthcare facilities are still functioning.
People on the ground say the situation is much worse. Oxygen is one critical need the country is short of.
