Read what is in the news today:

Society

-- South Korean news channel YTN said in an announcement released on its website earlier this week that it regrets that it has triggered an outrage on Vietnamese social media, with its way of reporting about the treatment that 20 South Koreans had received while being in quarantine in Vietnam as a new coronavirus disease (COVID-19) precaution last month.

-- The Ho Chi Minh City Department of Health has raised its concern to the Ministry of Health that many Chinese passengers, who had left China for more than 14 days before entering Vietnam from areas that have not been affected by COVID-19, still run a high risk of being infected with and spreading the viral disease as their countries of arrival might have not strictly monitored them for disease prevention. Vietnam requires a compulsory 14-day quarantine period for anyone entering the country with a recent travel history to areas affected by COVID-19, including China.

-- The Ho Chi Minh City Urban Railway Management Board plans to finish and welcome visitors to the construction site of a station near the Municipal Theater in District 1 of the Metro Line No. 1 project, which connects the downtown area with District 9 in the city’s eastern part, by April 30.

-- Nearly 600 people from police, military and forestry personnel exerted effort in roughly a day to put out a wildfire on the Cam (Forbidden) Mountain, which is known as the highest mountain in Vietnam’s Mekong Delta region, in Tinh Bien District, located in An Giang Province, on Wednesday.

-- The Vietnamese Embassy in Indonesia on Wednesday recommended Vietnamese citizens in the country to actively protect themselves and their families from COVID-19.

Education

-- The Ho Chi Minh City Department of Education and Training has conducted a quick survey to ask for parents’ opinions on whether students should wear face masks in the classroom, as their back-to-school dates are near after they have stayed home for a long time to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Business

-- A number of restaurants and coffee shops have been shuttered over the course of a week on Phan Xich Long Street in Phu Nhuan District, one of the busiest dining streets in Ho Chi Minh City, for unclear reasons.

-- Many enterprises in the central city of Da Nang called for help and support from the government to get over difficulties due to the impacts of the COVID-19 epidemic at a meeting between the municipal People’s Committee and local business organizations on Wednesday.

World News

-- Over 94,200 people have been infected with the novel coronavirus and 3,221 killed globally as of Wednesday, according to the Vietnamese Ministry of Health.
