Eighty-one Myanmar nationals landed at the Yangon International Airport by a relief flight organized by the Myanmar Embassy in Paris after they were stranded in France due to the suspension of international flights yesterday morning.
The MNA relief flight organized by the Myanmar Embassy in Singapore also brought 63 seamen back home from Singapore yesterday evening.
The Ministry of Labour, Immigration and Population, the Ministry of Health and Sports and the Yangon Region government arranged 14-day quarantine at specific places or designated hotels, followed by the 7-day home quarantine.
To bring back the Myanmar citizens who are 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 Ei Phyu Phyu Aung)
