Ho Chi Minh: Vietnam to test entire city amid new variant fears

Vietnam hopes to tackle a new Covid outbreak by testing the entire population of Ho Chi Minh City and introducing new social distancing measures.

The efforts come in response to a new cluster linked to a religious mission.

Vietnam has had relative success in controlling the virus but cases have been rising over the past weeks.

Over the weekend, officials warned of a new “very dangerous” hybrid variant discovered in the country.
