Vietnam moves to block coronavirus risk to supply chain

Factories in Haiphong told to report their numbers of Chinese workers

The Haiphong People's Committee acted shortly before manufacturers in Vietnam fully resume operations Monday, with thousands of workers from China possibly returning from a Spring Festival holiday extended there until Sunday.
