The People’s Committee of Tran Van Thoi District in the southernmost Vietnamese province of Ca Mau on Saturday said that local authorities had caught 38 people making illegal entry into the country.

According to preliminary information, the 38 people hail from different localities across Vietnam.

All of them went abroad to work as day laborers.

They attempted to go through the Song Doc estuary in the district’s Song Doc Town by fishing boats to return home for the upcoming 2021 Lunar New Year celebrations.

The local authorities sent all of the border jumpers and two Ca Mau locals, who had picked up them, to a centralized quarantine facility of the province for COVID-19 prevention and control on Friday.

The functional force is further clarifying the case.

Ca Mau Province has a coastline of more than 254km, with over 80 estuaries connecting to the sea territory bordering several countries. 

Cases of making illegal entry by sea through the province have been rampant and complicated, especially when the Lunar New Year is approaching.

Facing the situation, Ca Mau authorities have called on people to retain high spirit for COVID-19 prevention and make immediate report whenever detecting a suspicious illegal arrival in the locality.
