Woman fined $400 for trying to evade Covid quarantine

A woman in the northern Bac Giang Province has been fined VND10 million ($434) for refusing to quarantine and barricading herself at home earlier this week.

Officials use a ladder truck to approach a woman in Bac Giang Province who had come into contact with a Covid-19 patient but refused to enter quarantine.

She refused, went up to the third floor of her house and locked the door.

It took officials five hours of persuasion using megaphones and a ladder truck to dispatch people to the third floor to talk to her. Finally, that night, they had to break the door open and take her to quarantine.

But the trouble continues for authorities.

Nguyen Hai Yen, people's committee chairman of the local Tran Nguyen Han Ward, said: "Though her rapid test for Covid-19 came up negative, she has to be isolated for 21 days.

"The woman refuses to eat and drink, and is making a commotion inside the facility."

Since the latest Covid wave began on April 27, Bac Giang has become a hotspot with 1,881 cases, or more than half the country’s total number.
