Hanoi Secretary: if disciplined not tightened, 15 social distancing days will be wasted

Hanoi Party Committee Secretary Dinh Tien Dung warned that the city needs to tighten discipline or it will waste the 15 days of social distancing mandated because of the Covid-19 outbreak.

Social distancing should be lifted gradually, prudently: PM

Social distancing measures need to be lifted in a gradual and prudent manner that suits each locality’s situation so as to achieve the dual target of effectively controlling the COVID-19 pandemic and ensuring socio-economic development.

Social distancing extended for high-risk localities, including Hanoi & HCM City

Twelve localities deemed to have high risk of COVID-19 spread will continue to implement social distancing measures under Directive 16 of the Prime Minister to April 22 or 30, or even longer, if infections continue to be detected.
