Mr. Nguyen Tien Dung, Chairman of Nghi Loc District People's Committee (Nghi Loc DPC) said: “Concentrated quarantine centers (for asymptomatic people with epidemiological factors) in Nghi Loc district helped take care of 523 quarantined citizens during 16 to 18 days. These people returned abroad or epidemic areas like Bach Mai hospital and high-risk provinces such as Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi and Ha Tinh. Currently, Nghi Loc is preparing the necessary facilities for the second phase of concentrated isolation with nearly 300 people. ”
