He ordered the department to immediately request people, who were at the sites the patient 1347 visited, to contact local health facilities, and to temporarily put those places in lockdown.

He warned the public to stay on high alert at a time when the coronavirus has re-emerged in many parts of the world and Vietnam is still granting entry to certain groups of people who are subject to mandatory quarantine.
