With the 1 February coup and the ongoing Covid pandemic, the situation in Myanmar has never been more precarious, and the country is in danger of becoming a failed state.  The peace process, stalled for years, is now completely moribund. Conflict has intensified in ethnic areas that have seen decades of war, and violence has erupted in new areas previously untouched.  Violent crackdowns are taking place across the country, from the major cities of Yangon and Mandalay to the smaller cities and villages of Bamar-dominated Central Burma.
