Vietnam’s health ministry says up to 800,000 visitors to Danang city, the nation’s coronavirus epicentre, have left for other parts of the country since July 1.

Vietnam last week detected its first locally transmitted COVID-19 cases in more than three months in Danang, a tourism hot spot.

More than 41,000 people have visited the three hospitals since July 1, the ministry said in a statement.
