Hundreds of Myanmar Migrant Workers Stuck Near Border Outpost After Return From China

Up to 400 migrant workers returning to Myanmar from China amid the spread of the coronavirus are stranded near the border in Shan state, where authorities have blocked access to roads and are forcing them to remain during a mandatory 14-day quarantine period, two of the laborers said Sunday.

The workers said they have been staying on the streets of in the Mongla area along a border crossing because Myanmar authorities have prevented them from going onward when they returned to Myanmar on April 3 from jobs in the China-Myanmar border area.
