We would like to thank Ngo et al., for expressing their interest in our work. In our recent work, we looked at the preventive measures that were undertaken by various cities and provinces across the globe to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infection. In their correspondence, Ngo et al., have raised potential concerns in association with the data presented and certain definitions used in the paper. Upon receipt of their letter, we revisited our data sources. Herein, we provide a point-by-point response to the concerns raised by Ngo et al.
