Hanoi imposes 14-day compulsory quarantine for returnees from Danang
The returnees would include 800 people who have been trapped in the city and many others who want to travel to Hanoi for different reasons.
Returnees from Danang city, the once epicenter of the Covid-19 pandemic in Vietnam, to Hanoi will be tested for SARS-CoV-2 and undergo 14-day quarantine at home in accordance with regulations, Nhan Dan newspaper quoted Hoang Duc Hanh, deputy director of the Hanoi Department of Health, as saying.
The decision was made as the Ministry of Transport has allowed the restoration of all passenger transport services to and from Danang.

According to the deputy director of the Hanoi Health Department, the returnees would include 800 people who have been trapped in the city and many others who want to travel to Hanoi for different reasons.
Hanh said he believed that the Covid-19 pandemic in Hanoi has been controlled. However, with the full restoration of travel between the capital city and other provinces, the risk of new Covid-19 cases still imminent.
During home isolation, people must immediately go to medical facilities to be tested when they show symptoms such as fatigue, pain, and fever.
People need to self-monitor their health, take preventive measures for Covid-19 under the health sector’s guidance, limit close contact and avoid going to crowded places or participate in unnecessary events.
Additionally, people should keep track of their travels and contacts and should report to the local health center or the nearest hospital if they suspect someone is infected.
In the second phase of the Covid-19 pandemic in Vietnam, Hanoi had screened more than 8,000 people returning from Danang city and detected three cases that were positive for SARS-CoV-2.
As of September 8, Vietnam has gone six consecutive days without a single community transmission case while the Covid-19 pandemic situation in the three hardest hit localities, namely Danang, neighboring Quang Nam province and the northern province of Hai Duong, has been put under control.
At the time of writing, the nation’s Covid-19 caseload now stands at 1,049, with 157 active cases and 854 recoveries. The country has reported 35 deaths due to the pandemic, according to the Ministry of Health.
