A man has been sentenced to five years in prison in Vietnam for violating the Kovid-19 control law and spreading coronavirus.
A man named Lee Van Tree has been diagnosed with a “dangerous infectious disease” by a court.
One of the eight died of the disease.
Until recently, strict sanctions were successfully enforced in Vietnam.
But since that month, the delta variant, which is considered highly contagious, has caused the covid to spread rapidly.
More than 530,000 people in Vietnam have been infected with the coronavirus. Of those, 13,300 died.
Most of the infected were found in the capital, Ho Chi Minh City.
In July, the 28-year-old Tree left the capital on a motorcycle to travel to his home state of Sa Mau, in the southern part of the country.
In Sa Mau, he was found to have written untrue information about his travel details while filling out a health form. And he did not follow the rules of isolation.
At that time, the local body had imposed a rule that all people coming to Sa Mau from other provinces should be separated from others for 21 days immediately.
The tree was later confirmed to be covid.
He was found to have transmitted the coronavirus to other members of his family and to the staff of a welfare organization he visited.
After a day of trial, he was sent to prison and fined डलर 800.
