The competent forces of Ninh Thuan Province deported 10 Chinese citizens who had earlier entered Vietnam illegally, after they completed a mandatory quarantine period and tested negative for COVID-19 three times.
The provincial Department of Health on June 24 said that the forces imposed administrative fines on the 10 Chinese and took them to the Lang Son border gate to conduct procedures for their deportation, reported Thanh Nien newspaper.
Earlier, on June 4, a local COVID-19-related task force arrested four Chinese people traveling on a car driven by Le Duy Thuy, who resides in the central province of Thanh Hoa, while they were en route from Binh Thuan to Ninh Thuan.
After inspection, the task force arrested six more Chinese citizens on a seven-seater car which was traveling on the National Highway 1 section from Binh Thuan to Ninh Thuan.
The force took these 10 Chinese to a local concentrated quarantine center in line with prevailing regulations.
The 10 Chinese had their Chinese identity cards but no passports or visas and showed signs of illegal entry. All of them are male and reside in China’s Fujian.
