The Capital High Command is asked to keep preparing military facilities for the 14-day concentrated quarantine under a Covid-19 response plan, Kinh Te & Do Thi newspaper reported.

Relevant agencies have to develop a backup plan for locations, isolation facilities, accommodation and necessities to ensure the well-being of isolated people in case of large-scale isolation.

Hanoi police are tasked with ensuring order for the isolation of foreigners as well as their transportation to medical facilities, and places of accommodation.
