|Repatriated Vietnamese citizen (third from left) completes isolation period in Vinh Long city.
The citizen in question was 34-year-old Nguyen Hoang Hieu, a resident of ward 8 in Vinh Long city who had been working in Cambodia.
Hieu had originally returned to the country on May 18 and was immediately placed into isolation.
Over the course of the 14-day quarantine period, Hieu went on to test negative for the novel coronavirus twice, therefore meeting the necessary health standards in order to be granted permission to leave the isolation area.
At present, as many as 160 Vietnamese citizens, including 13 children and 11 pregnant women, remain in the quarantine area in Vinh Long city after recently being repatriated from Singapore.
