Hanoi narrows locked-down areas

Hanoi will narrow locked-down areas to restore production and business activities, according to the municipal People’s Committee.


According to the Hanoi People’s Committee, the city will not conduct large-scale lockdowns, but at the narrowest scale, to effectively control the pandemic.

The imposition of lockdowns will strictly follow directions of the Prime Minister and the Ministry of Health. The city will create all possible conditions to ensure the recovery of production and business activities and make it easier for people’s lives.

The city had tested 85 percent of its residents as planned, and vaccinated 93.18 percent of its population aged 18 and above.

The municipal Department of Health requested localities in “green zones” to closely control operations of restaurants and stationery business facilities to ensure pandemic prevention and control requirements.

The municipal Department of Public Security proposed the city continue to issue travel permits and maintain checkpoints to ensure pandemic prevention and control./.
