Concluding a meeting Tuesday morning, the Government chief also tasked the National Steering Committee for COVID-19 Prevention and Control to announce safety regions for resumption of international flights.

Regarding development stance in the current context, Phuc reiterated the necessity to ensure safety for development in the ‘new normal’ through evaluation of international situation in association with the domestic situation.

He asked the Ministry of Foreign Afairs to issue concrete criteria and open channels for Vietnamese citizens and foreign experts to register for repatriation flights.

Phuc also tasked the Ministry of Transport to direct the aviation sector to arrange unlimited number of flights to bring experts, businessmen, and Vietnamese citizens to Viet Nam.

Since April 24, Vietnamese authorities have conducted 20 special flights to repatriate 6,001 citizens stranded abroad due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

As of 6:10 am on June 9, the country’s patient tally was 332, including 192 imported cases immediately quarantined upon arrivals, said the National Steering Committee for COVID-19 Prevention and Control.

Of the total 316 have been cleared of the virus, accounting for 95.2% and the current patients include 16 tested negative for the virus at least once.

As many as 8,182 people are under quarantine due to having been in close contact with COVID-19 patients or returned from foreign countries and territories, according to the committee./.
