Authorities in the central province of Quang Tri are considering paying quarantine fees for Covid-19 prevention for four Chinese people who illegally entered Vietnam.

Four Chinese nationals are detained on February 1 for illegally entering Quang Tri Province.

Vice-chairman of Quang Tri Provincial People's Committee, Hoang Nam said on February 22 that he has asked departments to deal with the situation of four Chinese nationals who were detained on February 1 for illegally entering the area.

According to the local police department, the four, Li Zi Jian, Jiang Shu Fa, Meng Shuai, and Chang Biao had been sent to a local quarantine area from February 1-21.

However, the four were unable to pay fees for quarantine, food, and viral testing during their stay in the province.

After completing quarantine time, they were brought to Huu Nghi Border Gate in the northern province of Lang Son to be transferred to Chinese authorities on February 22.

The police department has asked the committee to cover the payment for the Chinese people.

"This is the first time we have faced such a situation," the official said.

It is said that the quarantine cost for Covid-19 prevention in Quang Tri is VND4.6 million (USD200) per person.
