Border guards in the northern province of Cao Bang have caught 13 Vietnamese citizens attempting to enter the country illegally via the Vietnam-China border to dodge compulsory quarantine for COVID-19 prevention and control.

The border jumpers were detected in the border area in Thong Nhat Commune, Ha Lang District early Sunday morning, the provincial border guard officers confirmed.

They were escorted to the Quang Long border guard station for verification.

The border jumpers said they hail from multiple Vietnamese provinces, namely Thai Nguyen, Phu Tho, Thanh Hoa, Dak Nong, Bac Lieu, Soc Trang, and Tra Vinh.

They had entered China against the law to work since 2017.

The Vietnamese citizens were then required to fill out health declaration forms, had their body temperature measured, and brought to local quarantine centers in accordance with regulations on COVID-19 prevention and control.
