Hanoi to receive, quarantine over 800 returnees from Da Nang – VnExpress International


The capital city’s High Command said at a Monday meeting on Covid-19 prevention that the passengers will be quarantined at the military school under the High Command in Son Tay Town, 35 km west of Hanoi’s center, upon arrival.

All passengers and flight crew will wear protective clothing and have their temperatures checked before getting on the plane. The planes will be disinfected after they deplane.

National flag carrier Vietnam Airlines and budget carrier Vietjet Air will transport the passengers on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively.

The tourists have had to remain in Da Nang since July 28 when it went into a semi-lockdown and suspended all means of transportation in and out of the city. Da Nang, now Vietnam’s Covid-19 epicenter, recorded the country’s first domestic Covid-19 case on July 25 after a 99-day streak without community transmission.

On August 13-14, 625 people will return to Ho Chi Minh City from Da Nang, HCMC’s Chairman Nguyen Thanh Phong said Monday.

The returnees’ samples have been taken for novel coronavirus testing in Da Nang at the request of HCMC authorities. The test results would be available Tuesday, according to Truong Thi Hong Hanh, director of the Da Nang Department of Tourism.

“Since Hanoi has not asked for tests to be done before people aboard the plane, the returnees will be tested in the quarantine zone (in the capital city),” Hanh said Sunday.

Nearly 1,700 visitors, mainly from Hanoi and HCMC, are reportedly stuck in Da Nang, a top tourist attraction in central Vietnam.

Since July 25, the nation has recorded 389 domestic cases in 15 cities and provinces, all of them linked to Da Nang.

The country has had 847 Covid-19 cases, 433 of them active.
