Two locally-infected cases of COVID-19 were confirmed late January 27 in Hai Duong and Quang Ninh province, and the Health Ministry has immediately taken drastic actions to quickly stop the spread of the virus. The newly confirmed case in Hai Duong, a female worker, is related to a female patient found positive for the coronavirus upon her arrival in Osaka, Japan.
