A Vietnamese court has sentenced a person to five years in prison after being found guilty of breaching strict quarantine rules and spreading the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) to other people.
Today, Tuesday, September 7, the American network (CNN) quoted Vietnamese media as saying that 28-year-old Le Van Tri was convicted of “spreading serious infectious diseases” during his one-day trial, noting that He broke the rules of a 21-day quarantine after returning from travel.
These means added that they saw the spread of infection to eight people, one of whom died as a result of infection with the virus after a month of treatment.
The Corona virus appeared for the first time in the world at the end of December 2019 in the city of Wuhan in the Chinese province of Hubei, and caused more than half of the world’s population to enter health isolation in order to confront the first wave of the virus.
Corona injuries around the world have reached tens of millions, a number that has not stopped increasing at great rates since the outbreak of the pandemic.
A number of countries are witnessing a collective rise in daily infection rates with the coronavirus, a stage that some countries classified as the fourth wave of the virus, and began to impose more precautionary measures to confront it, which were similar to the curfew that was imposed during the first wave.
The World Health Organization is still calling on countries to implement social distancing measures, in addition to the health measures represented by wearing masks.
