NDO – As one of the quarantine facilities in Hanoi for citizens travelling from countries affected by COVID-19, the Military School of the Capital High Command in Son Tay Town now hosts over 770 people from 23 countries, including eight foreigners, being quarantined at the school.

Quarantine measures play a very important role in COVID-19 prevention and control. Despite numerous difficulties, officials and soldiers at the Military School have made significant efforts to prevent the disease from spreading to the community.

At the entrance gate, many people send goods and necessities, such as instant noodles, confectionery, fruit and milk, to their relatives who are quarantined there.

The people who come to send goods to their relatives are given medical checks right at the gate.

The packages are also checked carefully before they are handed over to people in the isolation areas.

Following the outside control posts, a layer of fencing was erected around the quarantine areas.

In isolation areas, people can go out to walk and play sports; however, they must strictly adhere to wearing face masks.

The food and drinks for people in isolation and those on duty are prepared by soldiers and employees at the school.

Each person is provided with a diet valued at VND57,000 per day, including VND11,200 for breakfast and VND22,400 each for lunch and dinner.

The dietaries are diverse and full of nutrition. Those on special diets will also receive the great attention they require.

The dietaries are packed carefully before they are delivered to the soldiers in the quarantine areas.
