Vietnam's largest outbreak of Covid-19 is affecting the production of suppliers to large international textile and footwear brands, with activity reduced or stopped completely in some factories.

According to a statement from the Vietnamese government, the factory of Taiwanese company Pouchen, the largest in Ho Chi Minh City with 56,000 workers, and a supplier to Nike, has had to close due to not being able to comply with the official requirements that workers sleep in the factory to stop the spread of infections to the community.EFE
