A special flight was organized for more than 60 Tajik nationals stuck in the United States over the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

The flight was reportedly arranged on the initiative of the U.S. Department of State and under support of the Tajik Embassy in Washington.  They were reportedly carried to Dushanbe yesterday night.

On the way back, the plane is expected to carry U.S. nationals working in Tajikistan to Washington.    

Meanwhile, the Russian Embassy in Dushanbe says the flight Dushanbe-Surgut-Yekaterinburg will be operated today.
