According to To Tu Ha, the airport’s managing director, despite stringent Covid-19 prevention efforts, the airport is facing high risk of Covid-19 infection.

Up to 16 Noi Bai International Airport passengers had close contact with a woman in Hai Duong Province who tested positive for Covid-19 after arriving in Japan. 

Hundreds of staff from the airport are also coping with the risk of the virus infection.

If the infection is detected, it is possible for the airport to be temporarily shut, Ha warned.

Ha noted that the Covid-19 test for the airport staff was urgently needed.
