HCMC – The source of the Covid-19 transmission in Danang City may have come from foreigners who have illegally entered Vietnam, competent agencies concluded during a meeting held by the Border Guard High Command on July 26.

A representative of the Department of Border Gates said that since June 1, illegal immigration to Vietnam has surged, with 4,360 entering the country through small paths mainly in Ha Giang, Cao Bang, Quang Ninh and Lao Cai provinces bordering China.

Due to the sharp rise in illegal entry and the detection of new community transmissions, Hoang Xuan Chien, commander of the Border Guard, announced that the Border Guard High Command had put in place all measures to prevent Covid-19 transmissions nationwide from July 26.

The border guard forces will tighten control over immigration at border gates and block small paths to stop any illegal entry, Dan Tri Online reported.

The border guard is also cooperating with the local police to initiate criminal proceedings against those involved in human trafficking rings.

Speaking at the meeting, Lieutenant General Chien insisted that the competent forces must effectively prevent illegal immigration to the country and send those who enter Vietnam to concentrated quarantine centers. It is necessary to tighten control to eliminate the community transmission of Covid-19.
