Parts Of Myanmar Unaware Of COVID-19 Due To Internet Ban, Rights Advocates Say

An Internet shutdown that began a year ago in parts of Myanmar is keeping some villages completely unaware of the global pandemic. The restrictions apply to multiple townships in the Rakhine and Chin states, site of an ongoing conflict between the country

Human Rights Watch says the restrictions, put in place last year on Rakhine and Chin states, are leaving some unaware of the pandemic. The restrictions are said to affect more than 1 million people.
