Police raided an ADN Care warehouse, represented by 39-year-old Nguyen Thanh Thao, and found many Covid-19 test kits and the Lianhua Qingwen Covid-19 drug featuring Chinese characters.

Thao failed to present relevant documents to prove the products' origins, which are worth around VND4 billion ($174,900). However, he said they were bought from a Cambodian acquaintance on Facebook. Thao transferred the acquaintance the money via online banking before receiving the goods in Binh Tan District.

Thao said his company also manufactures products like masks and alcohol for disinfection without a license.

An investigation is ongoing.
