TEN hotels and resorts in Ho Chi Minh City’s coastal district of Can Gio are being used as paid quarantine facilities with 486 rooms for people required to be under quarantine, according to the municipal Department of Information and Communications.

Many hotels in the city’s centre areas have registered to be paid quarantine facilities but Can Gio, which has the lowest population density of all districts, has been given priority to be used as a quarantine area, said Tu Luong, deputy director of the department.

As of Sunday, there were only 100 beds available to receive returnees from overseas to spend their mandatory quarantine at hotels and resorts, Luong said.

Room rates, including meals for a 14-day quarantine period at hotels and resorts, are around 8.4 million dong (RM1,594) per person.

Nguyen Thi Huynh Mai, chief of the Department of Health’s office, said hotels in outlying areas had been given priority to prevent the risk of community transmission of infections. — Viet Nam News/ANN
