As many neighbouring localities are also struggling with the COVID-19 outbreak, most hotels and tourist sites in misty city of Da Lat that are still open are expected to close in the days to come, resulting in hundreds of more workers in the tourism industry losing their jobs.

Lam Dong province has also stopped most entertainment services, including gaming centres, night markets, and other activities that draw crowds.

Given the increasing number of infections in neighbouring localities, the provincial health sector has warned of the risks of the disease spreading if the province does not apply strict control over visitors and their compliance with the health ministry’s recommendations./.
