Podcast: COVID Confusion

This week, we look at the raft of Covid-19 directives and announcements coming from different levels of government in Myanmar.

We talk to locals who are struggling to obey conflicting and often hard-to-follow orders, and to local administrators who are also finding the information hard to understand.

Doh Athan is a weekly podcast that looks at human rights issues from around Myanmar. It is made by Frontier with media partners from around the country. Doh Athan is made through a partnership with Fondation Hirondelle and the support of the Embassy of the Netherlands in Myanmar and the Swiss Agency for Development Cooperation.
