A relief flight of Myanmar National Airlines landed at Yangon International Airport yesterday afternoon, with 153 citizens who were stranded in Singapore due to suspension of international flights. 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 14-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 commercial flights, in accordance with the guidance of the National-Level Central Committee on Prevention, Control and Treatment of COVID-19. Until now, Myanmar has organized 18 relief flights to bring the citizens back home from Singapore every Friday.—MNA (Translated by Aung Khin)
