VT50 million for mandatory quarantine

The cost that the government will meet for quaranting over 1,500 citizens and residents in the immediate repatriation phase is around Vt50 million, says DG Bule

The government will spend around Vt50 million to cover the quarantine cost of over 1,500 citizens and residents in the first repatriation phase, said Director General (DG) of the Ministry of Climate Change (MoCC), Esline Bule.

This figure covers accommodation and daily meals in resort and hotel quarantine, it does not include the cost of repatriation flights, she said.

DG Bule said the government has already covered the Vt13 million quarantine cost of the initial repatriates who were kept at Holiday Inn.

Before moving repatriates into the quarantine facility, the government has to meet at least 20% of the cost, she conveyed.

DG Bule revealed this when she was answering questions during a press conference that was held at the Prime Minister (PM’s) Office to provide update on the government’s repatriation following the end of the immediate phase yesterday.
