CÀ MAU — Three more Vietnamese students returning from South Korea have been quarantined at a military school in southernmost Cà Mau Province, the provincial COVID-19 Prevention and Control Steering Committee has said.
All three students had returned from Incheon, South Korea and arrived at the HCM City-based Tân Sơn Nhất International Airport on February 28.
The three took a bus to the quarantine area a day later.
Previously, the three students had contacted a friend whose mother tested positive for SARS-CoV-2.
They are currently in good health, the committee said.
The provincial People’s Committee Chairman Nguyễn Tiến Hải has asked authorised agencies to check those who had contacted these three students to give health check-ups and compulsory quarantine if necessary.
The authorised agencies have sprayed disinfectant at all places the students had been.
Reports from the provincial COVID-19 Prevention and Control Steering Committee showed that as many as 14 suspected cases have been quarantined in the province. All are in good health condition.
South Korea has become the COVID-19 epicentre after China. As of Monday morning, the country has reported 476 new cases of the coronavirus, bringing the total number of infections here to more than 4,210.
So far, 26 people have died here from COVID-19, the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) has revealed.
Việt Nam has been clear from the SARS-CoV-2 after the last of 16 infected cases was discharged from hospitals last week. No new infection cases have been reported in the past two weeks. — VNS
