Dr. Hnin Ei Phyu, the deputy head of Shan State’s health department, said that the patient has gone on to stay in a quarantine facility for a week.

“Patient Case 121 left the hospital. She will have to stay at a quarantine center for seven days and home quarantine for another seven days,” she told SHAN.

The individual is reportedly a medical doctor who had returned from a trip to the UK last month when she contracted the coronavirus.

“She was admitted to the hospital on April 21 and left the hospital on May 16. Her health is fine,” Dr. Hnin Ei Phyu added.

The Ministry of Health and Sports reported that there are 187 confirmed cases of COVID-19, six deaths and 97 recoveries in the country.

Three COVID-19 patients are still getting treatment in Kengtung, eastern Shan State, but ptients in Lashio and Muse have already been discharged.
