Vietnamese citizens complete quarantine procedures

Passengers include children aged below 18, the elderly, pregnant women, labourers with expired contracts, students without residence due to dormitory shutdown and other especially disadvantaged cases.

After landing in Can Tho, they were put under quarantine in line with regulations.

Also from October 22-23, more than 360 Vietnamese citizens from the US and the Republic of Korea also returned home.

They were also quarantined after arriving at Da Nang international airport.

In the near future, similar flights will be conducted to take more citizens in disadvantaged situation home, considering domestic pandemic situation and quarantine capacity.
