National Unity Government (NUG) plans vaccine rollout.


  • In August, NUG formed the National Health Committee with Ethnic Health Organisations that are active at border areas.
  • The collaboration between both entities aims to vaccinate people at border areas. However, it is anticipated that challenges will come for vaccination in urban areas that is under tighter controls by the military regime.
  • To prevent the spread of virus amongst residents at border area, the authorities in Ruili in Yunnan evacuated residents to quarantine centres. This came after continued report of local infections despite the lockdown in the district and border trade has been halted since the lockdown.
