[News] Health ministry says Covid patients still cannot leave homes
The health ministry on Monday night explained a policy to allow Covid-19 cases to "get out of quarantine", saying they're only allowed to leave their rooms, not their homes.
In a new guideline to manage Covid-19 at home issued the same day, the Ministry of Health said Covid-19 cases should try not to leave quarantine and go outside, but if they have to, masks and social distancing are required to prevent infection.
Many understood the guidance meant Covid-19 patients could leave their homes when necessary.
However, Deputy Health Minister Nguyen Truong Son on Monday night said Covid-19 cases are only allowed to leave the rooms where they're quarantined at. There has been no guideline on allowing Covid-19 cases to leave their houses and go outside yet, he added.
