VGP – Director of the Municipal Department of Health Nguyen Tan Binh was cited by VNExpress as saying three French tourists have been quarantined in Ho Chi Minh City after they travelled to Viet Nam from China’s Wuhan.

The tourists, who are family members, are being kept in isolation at the city’s Children’s Hospital as they showed signs of contracting the novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV), Binh added.
