Van Don Airport in the northern province of Quang Ninh has just closed after dozens of virus infection cases were reported.
Speaking with Dantri/Dtinews, director of the Northern Airport Authority, Tran Hoai Phuong, said that the temporary suspension was to prevent the virus spreading and to carry out sterilisation work at the airport.
“All flights scheduled to land or take off at Van Don Airport have been instructed to move to surrounding airports,” he said.”
Director of Van Don International Airport, Pham Ngoc Sau, said that they had always conducted tight Covid-19 prevention measures so were very shocked by the virus case.
“It has not yet been identified where the staff got the virus from,” he said. “We’re co-operating with the concerned agencies to trace the viral sources following instructions from the Ministry of Health. All of our staff have also taken viral tests.”
