HÀ NỘI — More than 300 Vietnamese in Sweden, Finland and other European countries were brought home safely from Stockholm and Helsinki airports on June 5 and 6.
The flights were conducted thanks to joint efforts of Vietnamese competent agencies, Vietnamese representative offices in the European countries, national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines and authorities of the host countries.
The passengers include students who completed their studies and met accommodation difficulties, under-18-year-old children, pregnant women, the elderly, sick people, tourists and workers with expired visas and labour contracts.
Upon their arrival at the Nội Bài International Airport in Hà Nội, they underwent health check-ups and were put under quarantine in line with regulations.
Depending on the preference of Vietnamese citizens abroad, the developments of the pandemic at home and around the world, and quarantine capacity in Việt Nam, more flights are to be conducted in the time to come to bring more Vietnamese citizens home.
Việt Nam reported no new COVID-19 cases on the morning of June 7, marking 52 consecutive days without infections in the community, said the National Steering Committee for COVID-19 Prevention and Control.
Among 329 confirmed cases in Việt Nam to date, 189 are imported ones and were quarantined right after their arrival. — VNS
