Major General Nguyen Quoc Duyet, chief commander of the command, has checked the preparations for the quarantine of the stranded people who will be back on August 12 on flights operated by national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines. 

They will stay at the command’s Military School in Son Tay town.

Those people are stuck in Danang after the government put this beach city on lockdown on July 28. Since then no flights have been allowed to and from Danang. 

After Danang detected the first local infection on July 25, some 96,000 people have arrived in Hanoi from that beach city.

The influx of returnees from the outbreak hot spot has put the city government in high alert, prompting the authorities to take preventive measures, especially testing and quarantining. 

Hanoi has so far found out seven returnees from Danang infected with SARS-CoV-2. 

The situation prompted Chairman of the municipal People’s Committee Nguyen Duc Chung to demand polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing for all people coming from Danang, with the priority given to around 80,000 who returned from July 15, to ensure no positive cases would be missed by quick tests.

Vietnam detected the first local infection in Danang, one of the most famous tourist attractions, on July 25 after 99 days without community transmission.
