The relief flight of Myanmar Airways International organized by Myanmar Embassy in Kuala Lumpur landed in Yangon yesterday evening with 174 citizens stranded in Malaysia including 61 from the detention centre due to the suspension of international flights.
Another relief flight of Myanmar National Airlines (MNA) organized by Myanmar Embassy in Singapore and Myanmar Seafarer Employment Service Federation (MSESF) brought back 143 Myanmar seamen stranded in Singapore in the same evening.
The Ministry of Labour, Immigration and Population, the Ministry of Health and Sports and the Yangon Region government arranged 7-day quarantine at specific places or designated hotels, followed by the 7-day home quarantine for them.
To bring back the Myanmar seamen and citizens in accordance with the instructions from National-Level Central Committee on Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is working together with the relevant ministries, Myanmar embassies from respective countries, shipping companies and the relevant organizations.—MNA (Translated by Khine Thazin Han)
