Central Da Nang City has announced eight hotlines available in English, Japanese, Korean and Chinese to help foreigners manage Covid-19 restrictions.

The hotlines are operated by the municipal Department of Foreign Affairs with names, telephone numbers and emails foreigners could access should they face any difficulties in buying food and essential products, or seeking medical treatment, etc.

The city also updates Covid-19-related news on the Facebook page "Connecting Da Nang Worldwide" to help foreigners keep up with the situation in town.

Da Nang has ordered all people to take shelter in place from Aug. 16.

Last Wednesday, the city extended the order by another 10 days to Sept. 5 as the Covid-19 community outbreak remains complicated.

Before this order, Da Nang had already imposed Directive 16, the strictest social distancing rule that does not allow anyone to leave home except for buying food, medicine and working with approval.

Official data stated that by last year, more than 3,200 foreigners lived in Da Nang.

In the ongoing Covid-19 wave that broke out in Vietnam four months ago, Da Nang has recorded more than 4,100 community cases.
