Published

on

Authorities in Nha Trang City, located in Khanh Hoa Province, south-central Vietnam, said on Tuesday that they had imposed a VND2 million (US$85) fine on a street hawker, who had been filmed pouring leftover broth into a stock pot supposedly for reselling.

Huynh Thi Ty, a 80-year-old local, who makes a living by selling a soup dish on a sidewalk near Khanh Hoa General Hospital in Nha Trang, received the administrative penalty for violating the regulations on street food businesses.

During a working session with functional forces, Ty refuted the claim in a video shared on social media on December 21, in which she apparently poured broth from a bowl that had been served to a customer into a stock pot with the intention of making more servings from the leftovers.

The woman explained that was the last serving of the day, and she poured the leftover into the pot in order to close her stall and planned to discharge it at her residence.

Two children die following suspected dog bite in north-central Vietnam

Published

on

Two children from Nghe An Province, north-central Vietnam have died following suspected dog bites.

Nghe An Obstetrics and Pediatrics Hospital confirmed on Wednesday it had recently received two young patients in critical conditions.

Doctors believed that the patients had been bitten by dogs and were infected with rabies.

In the first case, three-year-old L.B.T. showed symptoms, such as vomiting and convulsions, before his family took him to a district hospital for examination.  

T. was then transferred to Nghe An Obstetrics and Pediatrics Hospital for emergency treatment, with symptoms including respiratory failure, prolonged convulsions, profuse sputum secretion, and dread of wind and water.

Family members said T. often played with dogs and cats, and that a dog raised by the family recently died of unknown causes.

Doctors diagnosed T. with rabies.

Despite the treatment, the young boy eventually passed away.

The second patient, nine-year-old V.Q.H., also contracted rabies and did not survive.

Doctors said the patient did not receive any vaccination after coming into contact with an infected animal.

Rabies is a dangerous infectious disease transmitted from animals to humans mainly through bites or wounds, said Dr. Tran Van Cuong, head of the emergency department at Nghe An Obstetrics and Pediatrics Hospital.

The fatality rate of rabies is nearly 100 percent, and there is no specific treatment for the disease.

Vaccination is still the only effective way to prevent rabies for people bitten by dogs, Cuong stated.

Nearly 520,000 dogs are raised by residents in Nghe An, of which only 20 percent are vaccinated, according to the provincial department of livestock and veterinary medicine.

The province recorded five deaths by rabies in 2022.

Vietnam’s Dien Bien to close airport for 8-month expansion project

Published

on

Vietnam’s Ministry of Transport has issued a decision to temporarily shut Dien Bien Airport in the namesake northern upland province for eight months for an upgrade and expansion, starting from mid-April.

The airport, located in Thanh Truong Ward in Dien Bien Phu City, will be closed from April 15 to December 17 this year.

The current Dien Bien Airport was restored from Muong Thanh Airport, which was constructed by the French.

The airport has a runway which is 1,830 meters in length and 30 meters in width, three aprons, and a passenger terminal that was built in 2004 and has an annual capacity of 300,000 passengers.

Due to the short runway and simple landing systems, Dien Bien Airport only serves ATR 72 turboprops and Embraer 190 jets, which can transport a maximum 114 passengers.

The Dien Bien Airport expansion project is aimed at making it capable of handling modern Airbus A320 and A321 aircraft and the equivalent airliners.

VASCO, a subsidiary of national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines, and Bamboo Airways are operating air routes connecting Dien Bien with Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.

The Airports Corporation of Vietnam is in charge of managing and operating Dien Bien Airport.

Work on the Dien Bien Airport expansion project started on January 22 last year, with total capital of nearly VND1.47 trillion (US$62.3 million) sourced from the Airports Corporation of Vietnam.

Meanwhile, Dien Bien Province set aside VND1.56 trillion ($66.1 million) from its budget for site clearance.

The project includes lengthening the runway to 2,400 meters and widening it to 45 meters, rebuilding runway turn pads, building more taxiways, installing light systems, and developing some supporting components.

After the expansion project is completed, the passenger terminal of Dien Bien Airport will have two floors and an annual capacity of 500,000 passengers.

The project is slated for completion in the third quarter of 2023.

The Dien Bien People’s Committee had earlier sent a dispatch to the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam reaching a consensus on temporarily closing Dien Bien Airport from April 1, but work on some components was delayed, scrapping the plan.

In 2019, Dien Bien welcomed some 845,000 tourists, with 25,300 of them traveling to the province by air, local media reported.
