Soldiers, civilians turn full time cooks to feed the quarantined

Many soldiers and civilians in Thua Thien-Hue have stepped up to cooking and distribute meals for nearly 900 people in quarantine.

45 soldiers and dozens of volunteers in the central province's Phu Vang District have been spending most of their time in recent days cooking for 888 people at a quarantine facility, helping them through the Covid-19 pandemic.

For three meals a day, the government provides VND80,000 ($3.4) per person.

Most people quarantined in the facility, located at the dormitory complex of a college in Phu Vang, are from neighboring Da Nang City and those returning from overseas.

Da Nang is now the country's Covid-19 epicenter with 243 active case. Since July 25, the country has recorded 355 domestic cases in 13 localities, all linked to the city, a top tourist attraction.

Joining the soldiers on their culinary expedition are 30 women from the same district who have volunteered to serve so that the quarantined people can enjoy tasty, wholesome meals and feel safe in their isolation facility.

A meal contains stewed fish, chicken or pork, stir-fried bamboo shoots, soup and yogurt. Children and the elders can opt for porridge.
