Many people in Da Nang strictly abide by the Ministry of Health’s COVID-19 recommendations, including donning face masks in public places.
However, people are worried about the spread of the fresh coronavirus outbreak after the SARS-CoV-2 recurred in Ha Nam province and it has now been reported in three other localities of Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and Hung Yen.
In addition, less than 10 Vietnamese people were infected with the virus after having contact with a Chinese expert who had completed his 14-day quarantine period but had been diagnosed with the virus upon his return to China.
Localities such as Hanoi, Da Nang, Vinh Phuc, Yen Bai, Son La, Hung Yen, Hai Phong are ramping up contact tracing to early quarantine and test those who had directly and indirectly come into contact with COVID-19 patients.
Amid new coronavirus threats, the Ministry of Health has advised people to strictly follow its COVID-19 rules, including the 5K message in Vietnamese, namely khau trang (facemask), khu khuan (disinfection), khoang cach (distance), khong tu tap (no gathering), and khai bao y te (health declaration).
