U.S. returnee confirmed latest case of COVID-19
VGP – A 20-year-old man repatriated from the U.S. was confirmed the latest case of COVID-19 on Tuesday, raising the patient tally to 1,540.

The man landed at the Da Nang International Airport on January 13 and is being treated at the city’s Hospital for Lung Diseases.

Of the patient tally, 1,402 have recovered and exited hospitals while 35 others have been reported dead.

As the pandemic is still evolving swiftly and complicatedly around the world with the emergence of new strains, the Vietnamese Government ordered subordinate levels to strictly control borders in order to absolutely prevent illegal entrants.

Those who enter Viet Nam by land must be subject to mandatory quarantine at concentrated camps managed by the Army and shall not be required to pay quarantine accommodation fees.

Anyone who detects strange people or those likely to have returned from foreign countries need to report to local authorities./.
