DANANG – Six enterprises are operating partially, while 22 others have temporarily closed their doors to prevent the spread of Covid-19 at the industrial zones (IZs) in Danang City, according to Pham Truong Son, Head of Danang High-Tech Park and Industrial Zones Authority (DHPIZA), on August 10.
Up to now, 14 persons have tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 at some enterprises operating at the IZs in Danang.
Stating that the development of the pandemic has been complicated, affecting the production of businesses, Son said, “On the other hand, some workers have been quarantined, creating further difficulties for enterprises.” He added that DHPIZA encourages and supports businesses in need as much as possible so they can continue doing business comfortably.
He admitted that some enterprises were confused over handling business activities because business leaders could not enter Vietnam.
“We have guided our businesses over immigration procedures,” stated Son.
The total number of workers at IZs in the city is 70,500, accounting for 13.5% of the city’s total workforce.
As The Saigon Times had reported after the latest review of DHPIZA, by August 4, eight cases of Covid-19 were found among the workers at IZs in Danang.
