The Myanmar Seamen’s Federation (MSF) has been providing Yangon-Kawthoung bus service to Myanmar offshore seamen for embarkation during COVID-19.
The federation arranged two journeys from Yangon to Kawthoung on 12 and 13 September by abiding by social distancing rules that 58-seater Scania coach was carrying 28 passengers.
“Seamen who will embark need COVID-19 Clearance certificates issued by the National Health Laboratory (NHL). Local residents don’t need to be worried as the buses that will transport the seamen don’t stop at the towns along the way. We carried out programme after obtaining permits from relevant ministries,” MSF executive committee member U Kyaw Swe Win said.
MSF introduced the bus service to reduce travel expenses between Yangon and Kawthoung and to fulfill requirements in passing through the regions and states on the way.—Than Hteik (Translated by Kyaw Zin Tun)
