At a meeting in Ha Noi on May 28, the National Steering Committee on COVID-19 Prevention and Control asked localities to closely monitor international crew members, foreign specialists and Vietnamese citizens entering Vietnam from epidemic hit countries due to a rather high risk of virus infection from overseas

The committee assigned the Ministry of Health to dispatch a task force to hotels designed to quarantine international crew members to deal with any violations.

Meanwhile, the British patient, known as patient 91, is recovering slightly but remains on the extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), a life support machine.
