At the handover ceremony at the Vietnamese Embassy in Seoul, Ambassador Nguyen Vu Tu presented the masks to representatives from the Overseas Vietnamese and Vietnamese students Associations in the country.

The gift demonstrates the material and spiritual assistance the government provides to the community.

The RoK Government began its “no mask, no ride” policy on buses and taxis on May 26th, in an effort to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus on public transport.

Subway passengers, meanwhile, are strongly advised to wear face masks while travelling. All passengers on domestic and international flights have been required to wear masks, starting from May 27th.

Such measures were applied after nine bus and 12 taxi drivers tested positive for COVID-19 on May 24th./.
