HCMC – Bac Ninh Province has put into quarantine 358 Chinese experts that came to Vietnam to work at Goertek Vina Company, according to the provincial health department.
These experts entered Vietnam through the Huu Nghi border gate in the northern mountainous province of Lang Son on April 22, reported Nguoi Lao Dong newspaper.
On arrival, they made health declarations, underwent health checks and wore protective suits. Local agencies also checked the specialists’ certificates, granted by a Chinese hospital, which showed they had tested negative for the new coronavirus. They were then transported to two hotels in Bac Ninh in special-purpose cars.
Among them, 176 have been quarantined at the Wilton Hotel and 182 others are being monitored at the Crow Hotel. These two hotels were requisitioned as centralized isolation facilities in accordance with the Health Ministry’s regulations.
The experts and health workers and other employees at the hotels will undergo health checks twice per day. The hotels are being disinfected in line with prevailing regulations.
On the fourth and 13th days of the specialists’ quarantine periods, the province’s Center for Disease Prevention and Control will collect their samples for testing. If their results come back negative, they will receive certificates showing they have completed the 14-day mandatory quarantine period.
