Home sweet home...
Being in our home is the most cherished moment.
Some of us might have to leave Malaysia - maybe for studies, work or other reasons.
However, we can come to our home if we wish.
BUT, not everybody was lucky enough.
Some Malaysians were trapped in Wuhan after coronavirus outbreak.
They were forbidden to leave Wuhan due to the lockdown.
Malaysian government never gave up the effort of bringing them back to Malaysia.
The special flight on the second Wuhan evacuation mission has safely arrived at KLIA on 26 FEB morning.
There were 89 people on board:
i) 66 passengers.
ii) 12 crew members.
iii) 9 Malaysian government representatives.
iv) 2 officers from the Malaysian Embassy in Beijing.
According to TheStar, those who detected with the symptoms will be sent to Tuanku Jaafar Hospital in Seremban while others will be quarantine in Higher Education Leadership Academy (AKEPT) in Nilai for 14 days.
The Foreign Affairs Ministry told TheStar, 75 passengers were supposed to come back in the mission but nine of them couldn't make it due to various reasons.
"Six who were already at the (Wuhan) airport could not board due to health reasons. One passenger withdrew, also from health reasons, without being present at the airport, another could not make the trip because of work commitments while one more individual could not leave Wuhan due to logistical issues."
Meanwhile, there were a total of 107 Malaysians were brought back from the first Wuhan evacuation mission.
Hopefully, those who are still trapped can come back home soon.
