Recycled condoms confiscated
The state media could not confirm how many condoms were present in the bags or how many were already sold. They detained a woman who admitted she used to get $0.17 for every kilogram of condoms she reshaped for usage.
It all started after a resident informed the police about what was going on in the warehouse. The police raided the place after the information and found out about this dirty act.
The process of recycling condoms is dangerous to society. It causes high chances of spreading sexually transmitted diseases like HIV, syphilis, and gonorrhea. Thus at any cost, such an act must be prevented and taken action upon.
Sexual experts suggest that in no way can people reuse condoms. The process itself is filthy, and everyone around the world must know about it to prevent such acts. As of now, there are no reports from the Vietnam police on further investigation and charges.
