Stranded Indian healthcare workers fly back to UAE to fight COVID-19

Dozens of doctors, nurses, and caregivers stranded in India have flown back to UAE with special permission to help the country fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

The caregivers, all of the UAE’s NMC Healthcare group, had been stranded in their native country due to travel restrictions to limit the spread of the coronavirus.

Next week, NMC Healthcare is planning to get more than 80 additional staff members back to its hospitals across the Emirates.

These doctors, nurses and paramedics will be flying with special regulatory approvals via Cochin, Calicut, Trivandrum, Mumbai, Delhi, Coimbatore, Bengaluru and Chennai, the healthcare provider said.
