Hanoi (VNA) – Fourteen-day quarantine will continue to be applied on foreign experts, investors, entrepreneurs, management officials and Vietnamese entering Vietnam from other countries, said Foreign Ministry’s Spokesperson Le Thi Thu Hang at the ministry’s regular press briefing held online on February 4.

In the documents, the PM asked authorities of localities to promptly direct the control of the pandemic in a super fast manner, while strengthening efforts to thoroughly extinguish the pandemic, taking samples for large-scale COVID-19 testing, and the strict implementation of the 21-day quarantine policy, said the spokesperson.
