After learning that himself was an F1 case, Mr. Nguyen Van Chat, who lives in Co Loa Commune, Dong Anh District, immediately reported to the local authorities and got informed that he was eligible to self-isolate at home.

Mr. Chat said: Immediately after taking PCR samples at a local commune health station, he was propagated and disseminated necessary information to conduct a safe and convenient self-isolation.

According to the local authority, the fact that F1 cases are able to isolate at home initially creates favorable conditions for those suspected infected people and their families. The new policy was met with a high consensus of the people.

In the inner areas of the capital, although self-isolation measure is not used as extensively as in suburban districts, it is still considered a safe, convenient, and comfortable way to fight the COVID-19 disease./.
