Nguyen Van Chau, head of Ho Chi Minh City's Health Department, has revealed that many sick passengers who flew to Ho Chi Minh City used fever reducers to fool temperature scanners at the airport.

State media reports that the discovery of these scanner cheaters led to the detection of several infected cases later.
