Tenzin Zomkey, a class 12 student, studying in Armenia, took a long ride back home from Singapore in a flight that was returning with cargo yesterday.
After her school closed on March 20, she decided to return home. She was staying with her relatives in Singapore.
Although it was a rare case for a lone passenger flying in a giant airbus, she said that it was a routine flight. She said: “It is relieving to be finally home.”
Of all the passengers who returned to the country earlier and talked to Kuensel, Tenzin Zomkey was the first to say that she wasn’t scared of the virus. However, she said that her parents were worried.
Tenzin was screened and tested for the virus at Singapore airport. She tested negative.
Her college is likely to resume around mid-August. But she said it might change as the outbreak was unpredictable.
She is staying in the facility quarantine centre in Paro.
