Another relief flight of Myanmar National Airlines (MNA) arrived in Yangon, carrying 140 seafarers who have signed off from a ship of JSM International Shipping Company Limited and stranded in Korea under the arrangement of Myanmar Embassy in Seoul and JSM International Shipping Company Limited on the same day.
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. For the repatriation of Myanmar citizens who were stranded in foreign countries by relief flights and chartered flights in accordance with the instructions from National-Level Central Committee on Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs cooperated with the relevant ministries and Myanmar embassies from respective countries.—MNA (Translated by Khine Thazin Han)
