VTV.vn - Binh Duong province has just piloted the first COVID-19 home quarantine for an F1 case, after checking the conditions under the guidance of the Ministry of Health.

The case is living in a separate house with a warning sign notifying that it is a medical quarantine site to prevent Covid-19.

His wife and children live in the house next door. In front of the house, cameras are also installed to monitor. Medical staff will come to check and take samples 5 times during the quarantine period.

Previously, the Ministry of Health instructed and proposed for Binh Duong province to carry out medical home quarantine for eligible F1 cases.

In order to be eligible for home quarantine, houses must stand separately from others and warning signs should be put in front of the houses. The room for the quarantined person must be separate from the family’s common spaces and does not share the central air-conditioning system, and be disinfected daily.

Those under home isolation must strictly adhere to relevant quarantine rules, including not leaving the isolation rooms during the quarantine period, not meeting other people or pets; installing and turning on the Vietnam Health Declaration or Bluezone apps; and making health declaration, conducting self-health monitoring, and updating information on the apps.

The elderly and persons with underlying health conditions needing medical care must not stay at the same houses with those under home isolation.

Besides, other people sharing the same houses must not directly contact the F1s. They should also carry out self-health monitoring and minimise leaving the house.

Medical workers need to collect information and examine the health condition of the F1s and their carers every day.
