HCMC – Three more women reportedly entered Vietnam with the 1,440th Covid-19 patient and five others, but it is unknown if they are infected with Covid-19, the government of the Mekong Delta province of An Giang announced on December 31.
There were nine people who illegally entered the country. After arriving in Khanh Binh Commune of An Giang Province’s An Phu District, they were divided into two groups. The first group comprising the 1,440th Covid-19 patient and five others travelled in a seven-seater car driven by M.V.T, while T.V.U. drove another car to transport the rest, Tuoi Tre Online newspaper reported.
T.V.U. said one of the three women exited his car near the Con Tien Bridge in An Phu District to travel to Ca Mau Province.
T.V.U asked his friend to transport the woman to Ca Mau. The friend is quarantining in An Giang’s Chau Doc City and has tested negative for Covid-19 once.
T.V.U later transported the two others to HCMC. At An Dong Market in District 5, the two women visited a gold shop but the driver did not remember the name of the shop.
One of them asked T.V.U to drive her to her house but T.V.U did not remember the route or her address. The distance from the gold shop to her house is some six kilometers.
The An Giang Police Department and other competent agencies are tracing these women.
