The group had been put into isolation at the Cu Lao Minh General Hospital in Mo Cay Nam district. Following 14 days of strict monitoring, they remained in good health conditions, showing no indications of a cough, a fever, or shortness of breath.
Their isolation started on February 3, following the Mo Cay Bac District’s Medical Center receiving a notice regarding five Chinese people from Mingda Garment Company who had come to the Military Hospital 120 in Tien Giang province.
Due to one of the individuals suffering from sneezes and a runny nose, the district health centre co-ordinated with the company to bring the Chinese nationals and their manager into quarantine at the Cu Lao Minh General Hospital.
Simultaneously, the Military Hospital 120 in Tien Giang province also moved to isolate three doctors and seven health workers due to their close contact with five Chinese people.
The same day, the head of Military Hospital 120 stated that 10 doctors had been let out of the isolation area due to their health being normal.
At present, the provinces of Tien Giang and Ben Tre have not reported any positive cases of the COVID, with local authorities continuing to work in collaboration with relevant ministries, agencies, and residents to take steps to combat the disease.
