The move was introduced after a Japanese passenger, who transited in Ho Chi Minh City before flying home, was tested negative for the virus.

The passenger was on a Vietnam Airlines’ flight from Siem Riep to Ho Chi Minh City on Tuesday and then taking a connecting flight on the same airline to Japan. As he landed at Japan’s Nagoya Airport, the passenger showed symptoms of high fever and was taken to local hospital.

Earlier, authorities also requested mandatory heath declaration for travelers from China and South Korea and from COVID-19 affected areas of Iran and Italy.

The epidemic is spreading quickly across the world, with the outbreaks growing fast in South Korea, Italy and Iran.

At least 80,404 people contracted the virus, including 3,013 fatalities around the world.

In Vietnam, the situation has been controlled well but competent agencies are preparing for a possible scenario of a large-scaled outbreak with many infection cases.
