OUE Lippo Healthcare announced, on July 21, that the emergency department of its flagship hospital, Hlaing Tharyar Hospital, will be temporarily closed due to a shortage of manpower, oxygen and medical supplies amid the recent surge in Covid-19 cases in Myanmar.

Hlaing Tharyar Hospital is located in the country’s former capital of Yangon.

The duration of the closure has not been determined yet due to the uncertainty of the situation.
