A footwear company, which employs more than 4,000 workers, in the northern Vietnamese province of Hung Yen has been temporarily shuttered after one of them caught COVID-19.

Previously, functional forces in Hung Yen’s Yen My District had sealed off Tan A - Hung Yen Co. Ltd. from 5:00 pm on June 25 as four of its 520 workers were positive for the virus.

From June 21 to date, Hung Yen has recorded 39 local cases of COVID-19, of which 35 in Yen My District, two in Khoai Chau District, one in An Thi District, and one in Kim Dong District.

Local authorities have suspended karaoke parlors, massage service, bars, discos, barbershops, amusement parks, sidewalk food and drink services, and dine-in service.
