HANOI -- Vietnamese Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh is urging his government to focus on controlling the spread of COVID-19 in Bac Giang and Bac Ninh as a top priority, as the two provinces which are home to key industrial zones remain at "very high risk."
Chinh said the two provinces form the "fortress to counter the epidemic for the whole country" and that the government's "highest goal" should be on quelling the spread in the two provinces.
