Each turn of entry was one hour apart, with a total of 38 citizens. 78 people who entered illegally during the day were sent to medical isolation. "Some people take the initiative to go home in time so that they can have 14 days quarantine before Tet, but there are also some fleeing to their locality. The soldiers have to constantly patrol, even when the temperature drops below 0", major Cay said.
