A story of the three young women being quarantined in Vietnam because of COVID-19. Of course, there were some uncomfortable things in the quarantine area: they were not allowed to go out during that time, were restricted from contact with others, and language barriers. They were keeping positive despite language barriers and strange foods. During their quarantine, they seemed to be happy, still laughing, dancing, and provided accommodation, food, and regular medical checks. After isolation time they were announced negative to COVID-19. It seems that quarantine in Vietnam is nothing to be afraid of. Even for some foreigners, it was a memorable experience. Lucy Parker flew from London to Hanoi on 2 March before meeting up with her sister Alice and friends in Vietnam. The women were tracked down by authorities after a passenger on the Vietnamese Airline flight tested positive for coronavirus. This is the Vietnamese government’s strategy to prevent the spread of COVID-19 by immediately finding and quarantining infected people; direct and indirect contacts. This measure proved effective when the number of cases is very low and no deaths have been reported until now. They have been in isolation for seven days. Lucy, 22, Alice, 25, and their friend Hanna Ahlberg, 23, were traced to their hostel in Ha Long Bay by authorities days after Lucy disembarked from the plane. Police were deployed to their accommodation for disinfection, made records, and took them to a local hospital for isolation using as an isolation area. Hostel staff burn mattresses and other items that women have come into contact with to prevent the spread.
