President, State Counsellor in good health and performing State duties

Fake online accounts used a photo to spread false news that State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi met with a Covid-19 positive patient.
Director-General U Zaw Htay from the Ministry of State Counsellor Office denied the rumour, and the photo was between the State Counsellor and the UN Resident Coordinator for Myanmar at the call in Nay Pyi Taw on 23 March.
The Director-General explained the person with treatments in isolation at 1000-bed hospital in Nay Pyi Taw was the office staff of UN Special Envoy to Myanmar.
“I officially answer that both the President and the State Counsellor are in good health and are serving their State duties. They were neither in self-quarantine nor home quarantine. We are carefully arranging calls by visitors during this time of the Covid-19 disease,” U Zaw Htay said.—MNA (Translated by Aung Khin)
