HCMC – The police of Vinh Phuc Province have discovered and detained 39 Chinese nationals who entered the country illegally.
Law enforcement agencies on May 3 found the 39 Chinese nationals illegally staying at 19 Ngo Gia Tu Street in Khanh Quang Ward, 2 Nguyen Van Chat Street and 76 Nguyen Cong Tru Street in Lien Bao Ward in Vinh Yen City.
The date when they entered Vietnam remains unknown as there was a contradiction in their statements, Thanh Nien Online reported.
After discovering the Chinese nationals who then had their samples taken for testing, local authorities quickly sprayed disinfectant at these sites and seized several laptops, smartphones and SIM cards.
The province is seeing complicated Covid-19 developments due to a group of five Chinese experts who arrived in Vinh Phuc Province on April 24, after they had ended their quarantine period in Yen Bai Province. They visited many places such as karaoke parlors, bars and beauty salons in Vinh Phuc Province. One of them tested positive for Covid-19 after returning to China from Vietnam.
After being notified of the case, the competent forces in Vinh Phuc immediately conducted contact tracing and found 14 people infected with the virus.
