Vietnam has announced a “mandatory centralized quarantine” for 14 days for most people entering the country to prevent the spread of coronavirus, state-run newspaper Chinhphu reported.

The measure starts Saturday and applies to both Vietnamese nationals and foreigners, except for those traveling for diplomatic and “official” purposes, who are required to self-quarantine at places of residence under the supervision of local authorities.

An army spokesperson said Wednesday there are 140 quarantine areas that can accommodate as many as 44,718 people, according to Chinhphu.

Vietnam has 91 confirmed cases of coronavirus, with no deaths, according to the latest data from Johns Hopkins University, which is tracking cases reported by the World Health Organization and additional sources.
