“We perform two testing methods, serology (ELISA) and RT-PCR for foreigners residing in Son Tra district. We have made a list of foreigners living in the area to take the samples so that no one could be missed,” said Dr. Hoai.

According to Dr. Hoai, the district planed to collect samples for 2,198 foreigners residing in 7 wards of Son Tra district from August 21 to 25.
