Although the functional forces have divided the flow of vehicles to ensure circulation, however, as noted, this situation has not improved. The reason is that the drivers did not make the electronic medical declaration first, but only went to the quarantine point to access the declaration.

According to Lieutenant Colonel Vo Cu – deputy head of Hoa Phuoc traffic police station, now the medical declaration and check the declaration code are done automatically. However, many drivers are still passive, only waiting for the gate to start declaring.

“If you declare online, the driver will be issued a QR code. It only takes about 1 minute to measure body temperature and scan the code automatically, but many people do not understand this regulation, leading to a loss of time for the vehicles behind” – Lieutenant Colonel Cu said.
