Asia has witnessed an increase in the number of earthquakes recently. Prior to the earthquake in Myanmar, the Tawang region in Arunachal Pradesh also experienced an earthquake on Friday morning. Nepal has seen several seismic tremors in hilly areas as well. In Afghanistan, significant damage occurred due to earthquakes earlier in the week, resulting in numerous casualties.
In Afghanistan, the earthquakes have caused substantial loss of life and property. The Taliban, which is currently in power in Afghanistan, has issued an appeal for financial aid to assist in disaster relief, as the quakes have caused significant harm to the population, particularly among the impoverished citizens.
