Adapting to life under Covid-19 on Vietnam-China freight trains

"The epidemic has scared people away but we just keep going. It's a bit scary, but it's our job so we have no choice. Once the epidemic is gone, we can go home," said Khong Minh, 28, an assitant locomotive driver.

After the deadly novel coronavirus broke out in China's Wuhan City, Hubei Province, last December, Covid-19 has spread to 27 other countries and territories.

Vietnam has so far recorded 16 infection cases, and seven have been discharged from hospitals.

As of Sunday morning, the death toll had climbed to 1,669, four of them outside China.
