HCM City on the first day of the new normal

On the first day of easing social distancing measures, HCM City streets were crowded as people flocked to the road to do daily activities that had been suspended for nearly four months.

People in HCM City are now able to leave their homes after three months of strict pandemic prevention restrictions. People who want to attend social activities will have to show proof of vaccination to be admitted to establishments. 

On Thursday, police, soldiers and militia members removed over 300 COVID-19 barrier checkpoints set up between districts. 

VietNamNet captured the activities taken by HCM City people on the first day of easing social distancing (October 1):
