Weeks after Vietnam declared that all 16 of its coronavirus cases had recovered, the number of infected patients is on the rise following the reintroduction of the virus on a flight from Britain. Vietnam’s Health Ministry reported on Thursday (March 12th) that a total of 39 coronavirus cases, more than double the original 16.

Vietnam on March 9th suspended visa-free travel for citizens from eight European countries amid growing concern over the coronavirus epidemic. The suspension applied to citizens of Denmark, Norway, Finland, Sweden, the United Kingdom, Germany, France and Spain, the government said in a release on its website.

On March 11th 2020, Coronavirus confirmed as pandemic by WHO (World Health Organization). A pandemic is a disease that is spreading in multiple countries around the world at the same time.

Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to welcoming you.

Wish you all the best,
