Vietnam setting up field hospitals for possible virus influx

Vietnam is setting up field hospitals with thousands of beds to handle a potential influx of coronavirus cases, health officials said, as it prepares to receive its nationals from China. Vietnam shares a long porous border with China and the communist neighbours have close trade and tourism ties. The virus, declared a global health emergency by the World Health Organization, has so far killed nearly 500 people and infected more than 24,000, mostly in mainland China.
