The second relief flight from Japan landed at Yangon International Airport yesterday evening.
The All Nippon Airway’s repatriation airplane left the Narita International Airport, carrying 179 Myanmar nationals who were stranded in Japan due to suspensions of international flights amid COVID-19. 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-days quarantine period in line with the regulations of immigration and medical checks.
As per the directives of National-Level Central Committee on Prevention, Control and Treatment of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) and in coordination with other relevant ministries in Myanmar and the Myanmar embassies in respective countries, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs arranged relief flights and chartered planes to bring back Myanmar people from foreign countries. A total of 5,505 people have been repatriated to Myanmar to date as the government is taking preventive measures against COVID-19—MNA (Translated by Aung Khin)
