Under the chairman’s instruction, the city will list all residents who have returned from Danang since July 8.

People who came to vulnerable places in Danang such as Danang Hospital, Danang C Hospital, Danang Lung and Respiratory Diseases Hospital and Danang Transport Hospital, For You Place Wedding Centre and some others places in the districts of Ngu Hanh Son, Lien Chieu and Hai Chau have to quarantine themselves at their home and inform local medical authorities for being provided with tests.

People who went to Danang but did not come to vulnerable areas have to make health declarations and check the temperature every day.

The official has asked all people who have symptoms of cough, breathing difficulty and fever to contact local health agencies for being tested.

He also requested the municipal police to tighten control over people’s entry into the city to rapidly detect violations.

On Sunday, Chung reported that around 15,000 people returned to Hanoi from Danang.

Hanoi has urged people to wear face masks in public places and increase hygiene measures after the Covid-19 outbreak in Danang.
