HCMC – Contact tracers in HCMC last night, April 21, were on the lookout for people who were in close contact with three Vietnamese citizens who entered Vietnam illegally from Cambodia, then traveled to Thai Nguyen and Bac Ninh provinces, said the HCMC Center for Disease Control and Prevention (HCDC).

The group, comprising one man and two women, are self-employed workers in Cambodia. They returned home through a border crossing near a border gate in Tay Ninh Province at 1 a.m. on the day.

They then moved to the province’s Tan Bien Town and hired a taxi to go to HCMC. At around 4 a.m. on the day, the taxi took three of them to a hostel near Tan Son Nhat International Airport in HCMC.

After learning that the three entered the country illegally, the taxi driver returned to Tan Bien Town to make a health declaration.

The illegal immigrants then took a taxi to the airport, boarded Flight VJ134 that landed at Noi Bai International Airport in Hanoi at 9:10 a.m. on the day.

The two women took a taxi to return home to Thai Nguyen Province’s Dinh Hoa District and were taken to a quarantine center at 2 p.m., while the authorities discovered the man in Bac Ninh Province’s Que Vo District last night.

HCMC’s competent forces are inspecting places linked to the three persons. Their Covid-19 test results were unavailable.

Amid the complicated developments of the pandemic, HCDC asked local residents to stay fully alert to people entering illegally and report such cases to the authorities. Local residents whose relatives live abroad should advise them to return home lawfully to avoid causing a coronavirus transmission risk to the family and the community.
