VGP - The northern province of Hai Duong began massive RT-PCR testing for COVID-19 from Wednesday in an effort to evaluate the pandemic risks in the communities.

The locality – the biggest COVID-19 hotspot in Viet Nam – expected to test 7,000 people in 25 communes

With six RT-PCR testing laboratories, the province is capable of testing up to 50,000-60,000 samples per day.

Since the resurgence of COVID-19 on January 28, Hai Duong recorded 627 cases, prompting the local leaders to impose 15-day social distancing, starting from February 16.

Chi Linh City - the biggest COVID-19 hotspot in the locality - will continue to be placed under lockdown until the pandemic is stamped out.
