The move is in response to the continuing development of the acute respiratory disease caused by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), with an increasing number of cases around the world, including many countries in the EU and neighbouring Cambodia.
Experts said Việt Nam faces high risk of COVID-19 entering the country from the EU or Cambodia.
To prevent the disease from entering the country, the health sector will insist on medical declarations at border gates of all provinces and cities alongside medical quarantine in the country.
Passengers can print and fill out medical declaration forms provided at border gates at the website http://baocaokdyt.com or electronically at https://suckhoetoandan.vn/khaiyte.
Provinces and cities are suggested to arrange English and Khmer interpreters to work at the border gates to support and screen medical declaration forms.
When detecting passengers with symptoms of suspected COVID-19, like fever, cough or breathing difficulties, medical authorities will apply quarantine passengers following laws and regulations. — VNS
