Covid-19 prevention regulations in HCM City have been more tightly applied following the city’s new domestic infections.

After nearly three months without community-transmitted Covid-19 infections, Vietnam has once again recorded three locally-transmitted cases.

A 28-year-old flight attendant of the national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines, or Patient 1,342, ignored the self-quarantine regulations and infected two others. He is facing possible criminal charges.
