Myanmar has arranged relief flights for a total of 608 citizens who wanted to come back home from Japan, India, the Republic of Korea, Thailand, Bangladesh and Singapore where they were stranded due to suspension of passenger flights. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs helped for the returns under the directive of National-Level Central Committee on Prevention, Control and Treatment of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). The Myanmar Airways International carried back 93 persons from Malaysia, while 104 persons from the Republic of Korea and a total of 16 persons from Indonesia, the United States and the United Kingdoms were brought back from the Incheon International Airport.
On arrival at the Yangon International Airport, the Ministry of Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement and the Yangon Region government helped for their 21-day quarantine period at the designated places and the respective hotels in line with the guidelines of immigration and healthcare processes. The government will also send a relief flight to Singapore to carry the remaining 146 citizens.—MNA (Translated by Aung Khin)
