MPS - The Long Bien District Police on March 25 captured and fined an overseas Vietnamese student VND 10 million for evading self-quarantine.

According to Mr. Nguyen Manh Ha, Chairman of the Long Bien District People's Committee, the quarantine evader is Vu Thu Ha (born in 1995, residing in Sai Dong Ward, Long Bien District, Hanoi City), who studies in England. Earlier, she returned to Vietnam and has been requested to self-quarantine at home as she had had direct contact with confirmed Covid-19 patients. However, Ha quitted the self-quarantine and went to Noi Bai airport for departure to England.

The Long Bien District People's Committee then fined her VND 10 million for evading self-quarantine in accordance with the laws. This fine is the highest penalty for self-quarantine evaders.
