Chử Xuân Dũng, Vice Chairman of the Hanoi municipal People’s Committee, asked that all people who traveled to Hanoi from Hai Duong province from February 2 be tested and have their health monitored at home.
Dung, who is head of the Hanoi municipal Steering Committee on COVID-19 Prevention and Control, requested that random testing be conducted at factories, industrial parks, and manufacturing zones, which are deem high-risk because they employ foreign experts and workers from other localities. Medical staff and people working at quarantine facilities should also be tested, according to Dũng.
