Tracking down people who are linked with those positive with the virus remains one of measures to prevent contagion.
Vietnam’s Ministry of Health has called on all passengers who were aboard eight flights that carried coronavirus-infected patients to contact health authorities for checkups.
In an announcement released on Monday, the ministry required the passengers to contact with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in localities for being applied corresponding measures.
