HÀ NỘI — Seven Russian men coming to Việt Nam to work as experts for an oil and gas company have tested positive for COVID-19.

They are all being treated at Bà Rịa Hospital. The total number of people who came to Việt Nam on that flight who have tested positive for coronavirus now stands at 17.
Việt Nam has not seen any new cases in the community for 97 days.
More than 12,000 people are currently quarantined at hospitals, medical centres and at home. — VNS
