Starting from February 27, border dwellers could go through Vietnam’s Tan Thanh and China’s Pu Zhai auxiliary border gates, each with 8,000 yuan worth of commodities each day.

Vice Chairman of the Lang Son People’s Committee Nguyen Cong Truong said that drivers carrying goods through the border are only allowed to arrive at certain delivery points and quarantine areas at the border gates to prevent the risk of potential exposure to the acute respiratory disease caused by SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19).

Sterilisation must be carried out thoroughly at the border gates while drivers and traders are asked wear protective suits and go into quarantine if they develop symptoms of the disease.
