Dear readers,

It is with great regret that we announce a temporary suspension to the print edition of our newspaper from Tuesday, March 31 until April 15.

The decision became imperative once one of our staff tested positive for the SARS-Cov-2 virus yesterday. Many of those who have come into contact with her at our office will now have to stay isolated either at health centres or their homes.

It has thus become impossible for us to bring to you the print, hardcopy version of the nation’s premier English news daily.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and request your understanding in these challenging times.

Even at this juncture, we are committed to bringing you the latest developments in the country and beyond. To this end, we will ensure that our website is frequently updated with articles, analysis and commentary. So please continue your valued patronage by clicking on vietnamnews.vn and following us online.

Your print subscription will be automatically transferred to the next 16 days.

We wish you, your colleagues and loved ones good health in the days to come.

We also pledge that this experience only strengthens our resolve to come back stronger and continue to bring you news that matters about Viet Nam and the world.

Viet Nam News team
