Politics

-- The inauguration ceremony of Vietnam’s newly-elected State President Nguyen Xuan Phuc is scheduled to take place on Monday morning.

Society

-- Vietnam logged two new imported cases of COVID-19 in southern Tay Ninh Province on Sunday afternoon, bringing the national tally to 2,631 patients, with 2,383 recoveries and 35 virus-related deaths, according to the Ministry of Health’s data.

-- Authorities in south-central Khanh Hoa Province have approved nine flights to carry overseas Vietnamese people home, with quarantine costs covered by private enterprises, until April 20.

-- Dead fish and trash floated all over the water along the section of Nhieu Loc - Thi Nghe Canal in District 3, Ho Chi Minh City on Sunday. According to a staff member of the garbage collection team at the canal, the unseasonal heavy rains on Saturday and Sunday after a streak of hot weather caused the fish’s habitat to change dramatically, resulting in the mass death.

-- A rain on Sunday afternoon inundated Nguyen Huu Canh Street in Ho Chi Minh City, which is infamous for its vulnerability to rainwater and high tides.

-- Authorities in Dong Da District, Hanoi have preliminarily determined that a short circuit was the cause of the deadly fire that killed four members of a family at a baby store early on Sunday morning.

-- Police in Chau Thanh District, located in southern Tra Vinh Province, on Sunday filed the urgent arrest warrant for a 22-year-old local man who had often blocked female students’ way to show off his genitals and touch the students’ private parts.

Business

-- The Vietnam Standards and Consumer Rights Protection Association petitioned related competent departments and agencies in Vietnam to require H&M to recall its products that contain images and contents infringing on Vietnam’s sovereignty in the domestic as well as international markets, following the Swedish retailer’s agreement to re-publish an online map with the illegal U-shaped nine-dash line in the East Vietnam Sea at Chinese authorities’ request, according to Sai Gon Giai Phong (Liberated Saigon) newspaper.

World news

-- “Turkey recorded 41,998 new coronavirus cases in the last 24 hours, health ministry data showed on Sunday, slightly less than a record high it touched a day earlier as the country battles a huge surge in infections,” Reuters reported.
