HANOI (Reuters) - Vietnam reported on Friday two new COVID-19 cases, taking the tally to 270, its health ministry said, after the nation’s lockdown order was lifted a day earlier.

Both of the new cases are Vietnamese citizens, who returned from Japan on April 22 and were under quarantine upon arrival, the health ministry said in a statement. The country had stayed clear of the virus for seven days and has reported no deaths.
