The passengers included pregnant women, persons with underlying health conditions, those under 18 years old, students without accommodation, workers with expired labour contracts, and others in difficult circumstances.

Of which, more than 350 Vietnamese citizens were taken home from Taiwan (China) on two flights on October 5, about 220 citizens from Japan on October 6, nearly 350 stranded nationals from Australia and New Zealand on October 7, more than 240 Vietnamese repatriated from the Philippines on October 9, and nearly 180 citizens from Brunei on October 11.

The Vietnamese Embassies worked with the host countries' competent agencies to support the citizens in reaching the airports and sent staff to assist them with boarding procedures.

Security, safety and hygiene measures were rigorously taken during all the flights to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Upon landing at the airports, all crewmembers and passengers were given heath checkups and put into compulsory quarantine in accordance with regulations.

Such intensified disease control measures proved necessary as Vietnam confirmed two more COVID-19 cases, both imported, on October 11, raising the national tally to 1,109, according to the National Steering Committee for COVID-19 Prevention and Control.

Among the total cases, 691 are domestically infected, including 551 linked to Da Nang outbreaks. Vietnam has gone 39 days free of community infections.

Death toll remains at 35.

There are 15,887 people having close contact with confirmed cases or coming from pandemic-hit regions under quarantine now.

In the future, more flights are set to be conducted to repatriate Vietnamese citizens with disadvantaged circumstances, depending on their need and quarantine capacity at home./.
