Due to COVID-19, General Aung San museum and Secretariat building won’t be opened to the public in coming to 73rd Martyrs Day according to Minister for Religion and Culture Thura Aung Ko.

“Health priority must be paid special emphasis this year due to COVID-19 and so unlike every other year, General Aung San museum and Secretariat office won’t be opened to the public. But to meet the essence of Martyrs Day and to hold it successfully, central working committee, sub-committee, and security committee have to cooperate based on the experience gained in the past,” said Thura Aung Ko.

Moreover, various sub-committees are preparing for the offering of soon and alms on Martyrs Day. Rehearsals have to be made for the instruction to stay 6 feet apart from one another including Heads of States, invited guests and members of the military parade, he added.

The Secretariat is a colonial building where General Aung San and eight of his cabinet members were assassinated in 1947. Thousands of people usually observed the Secretariat building and the museum on Martyrs Day which is on July 19.

The Secretariat was opened to the public for the first time on Martyrs’ Day in 2014 and remains closed for the rest of the year.
