Failure to comply with quarantine rules could spread the epidemic
According to Assoc.Prof. Dr. Tran Dac Phu, Senior Advisor to the Center for Emergency Response to Public Health Events in Vietnam, although the Ministry of Health has had detailed and specific instructions on the strict implementation of the regulations. However, in our country, there is still a gap in the quarantine area when the quarantined person comes into contact with other objects or does not comply with the regulations during contact with the quarantine person.
For example, in the outbreaks in Da Nang, Hai Duong, we could not find the F0 (the first case) at all. Or a small outbreak originating from the Covid-19 case in the airline cabin crew isolation area at the end of November 2020. During home isolation, this patient did not comply with quarantine regulations to spread the disease to 3 other cases.
“We have learned lessons from the subjectivity, neglect, and loopholes in isolated areas, but in the current context, when translation in neighboring countries is complicated, Vietnam is still real. Currently, flights bring Vietnamese people back home as well as bring experts to work …, so if they do not strictly comply with the quarantine regulations, the epidemic can spread to the community “- Associate Professor Phu warned.
