After 14 days, the quarantined person with no signs of Covid-19 symptoms are allowed to leave.
General Ngo Xuan Lich, minister of National Defense, asked the Military Medical Department to continue coordinating with civil and military bodies to prevent and control Covid-19 infection and minimize the risk of the epidemic spreading to the army.
