Myanmar's national-level Central Committee on Prevention, Control and Treatment for Covid-19 has extended the period of preventive measures until December 15.

The extension will be applied to all orders, announcements, directives issued by respective union level government organizations and ministries which will expire on Monday, as part of the preventive measures to curb the spread of the disease, reports Xinhua news agency reported.

According to a statement from the Health and Sports Ministry on Saturday, Myanmar reported 1,344 new cases and 22 deaths in the past 24 hours.

The country's overall caseload has increased to 87,977, while its death toll stood at 1,887, the ministry's figures said.

A total of 67,588 recovered patients have been discharged from hospitals so far.

The virus was first detected in Myanmar on March 23 this year and over 1.13 million samples have been tested for the disease.

Meanwhile, the Road Transport Administration Department announced on Saturday to resume new vehicle registrations starting December 1 at its branches in Nay Pyi Taw, Yangon and Mandalay.

According to the announcement, the registration operations for new vehicles will be carried out with daily limited numbers of vehicles in order to avoid mass gatherings.

The Department had suspended all operations in early September due to a spike in the number of new cases.
