The 21 Chinese citizens were among those who were staying in a residential area in Dien Duong ward, Dien Ban town of Quang Nam province. 

The police raided the apartment and detained 21 people, many other managed to escape.

Local medical workers took their samples and test results showed they had not been infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

The detainees were said to belong to a human trafficking ring masterminded by a number of Vietnamese and Chinese people to illegally bring Chinese nationals into Vietnam. Local authorities decided to prosecute the criminal case.

The Quang Nam police collaborated with their counterparts in northern border Lang Son province to hand over the Chinese fugitives to border guards at Lang Son’s International Friendship Border Gate for expulsion.
