QUẢNG NINH — Eight supervision stations for people and vehicles going in and out the northern province of Quảng Ninh started work from Wednesday.
It’s part of the province’s efforts to prevent the COVID-19 pandemic from spreading.
The eight stations are located in border areas with four neighbouring provinces and cities including Hải Phòng, Hải Dương, Lạng Sơn and Bắc Giang.
Workers at the stations are police, medical workers and transport inspectors.
Each station has from six to nine people divided into three teams. They take turns working all day.
They are responsible for checking foreigners and Vietnamese people coming in and out the province, checking people’s temperature and travel history, especially those from areas with confirmed COVID-19 cases. — VNS
