Hai Duong, the biggest coronavirus epicenter of the nation, has to date recorded a total of 636 local transmission, trailed by its neighbor Quang Ninh with 61.

Of the total figure, as many as 820 domestic cases have been detected since January 27 when a new COVID-19 wave broke out.

According to Health Minister Nguyen Thanh Long the COVID-19 pandemic has now been put under control in the country, with many of 13 pandemic-hit localities reporting no fresh community cases over the past days.

However, the Health Minister urged localities to continue strict complying with anti-pandemic measures, and paying greater attention to monitoring medical facilities and patients showing symptoms such as a fever and a cough as well as foreign experts and people entering the country from abroad.

Hanoi and HCM City- the country’s two major cities- will consider easing restrictions on non-essential services in the time ahead as they have recorded no new coronavirus cases in recent times.

Additionally, Ho Chi Minh City is poised to allow the reopening of schools as from March 1, according to the municipal People’s Committee.
