Earlier, the Management Board issued Document No.199/BQL-QLDN&LD on February 3, 2020, requesting businesses and investors at industrial parks and high-tech parks in Danang to take urgent measures to prevent the disease from spreading.

This included taking care of workers’ health, isolating those returning from the pandemic areas for 14 days. When the disease was announced in Vietnam, the Management Board had temporarily suspended the granting of work permits to foreigners in the areas where the pandemic was detected.
