As of March 17 2020, there are 45 new confirmed cases in Vietnam. Most of the new cases are on the same flights from Europe to Vietnam. Several hotels and junks where passengers, who are tested positive, from those flights are quarantined to stop the spread of the coronavirus. Also, Vietnam government decided to temporarily close main attractions across Vietnam, details as below:
|Hanoi||Ngoc Son Temple|
|Hoa Lo – check day by day|
|Duong Lam Ancient Village – only biking is doable, no local houses visit|
|Phan Thanh Liem puppet show|
|Water puppet show – Bong Sen Theater|
|Ninh Binh||Trang An|
|Dinh, Le Temple|
|Cuc Phuong National Park|
|Ha Long Bay||Ha Long Bay|
|Bai Tu Long Bay|
|Lan Ha Bay|
|Hue||All main attractions|
|Hoi An||Cantonese Chinese Assemble|
|Tan Ky House|
|Nguyen Tuong Family Chapel|
|Thanh Ha Pottery Village|
|Tra Que Vegetables Village|
|Close the whole ancient town|
|Quang Binh||Phong Nha National Park|
|Mekong Delta||Binh Thuy Le Ancient House|
|Close the whole Tien Giang province|
|An Giang Province|
|Ben Tre Province|
The situation is changing rapidly; therefore, in the next few days the government could issue new closure policy to more attractions, tourist sites, public area or even stop tourists from some other countries to enter Vietnam (even with those have visa) if they find high risk. Tourists can be quarantined while travelling in Vietnam if they stayed at the same hotel or flew on the same flight with people who got coronavirus.
