A total of 112 Myanmar citizens who were stranded in the United States of America and the Republic of Korea because of the suspension of commercial flights returned home by relief flight yesterday.
Myanmar embassies in Washington and Seoul jointly organized the Myanmar Airways International (MAI)’s relief flight bringing back 51 citizens from the United States of America and 61 from the Republic of Korea.
The Ministry of Labour, Immigration and Population, the Ministry of Health and Sports and the Yangon Region government provided them with proper medical tests and arranged 7-day quarantine at specific places or designated hotels, followed by the 7-day home quarantine.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has been working with Myanmar embassies in foreign countries and local ministries concerned to bring back citizens stranded abroad due to the suspension of international commercial flights, in accordance with the guidance of the National-Level Central Committee on Prevention, Control and Treatment of COVID-19.
