A relief flight of Myanmar National Airlines (MNA) brought back 122 Myanmar nationals stranded in India, and it landed at Yangon International Airport yesterday evening.
As they arrived in Yangon, officials from the Ministry of Labour, Immigration and Population, the Ministry of Health and Sports, and the Yangon Region government helped for their 21-day quarantine period in line with the regulations of immigration and medical checks.
To bring back the Myanmar citizens who were stranded in foreign countries in relief flights and chartered flights in accordance with the instructions from National-Level Central Committee for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs cooperated with the relevant ministries and Myanmar embassies from respective countries. The government also has arranged to repatriate the remaining Myanmar nationals from India on 29 August. —MNA (Translated by Khine Thazin Han)
