Hanoi’s COVID restrictions ease for outdoor activities
Hanoi has allowed outdoor sport and physical exercises, as well as malls, fashion and cosmetic stores, starting from today.
People in the capital will be allowed to participate in sport and physical exercises outdoors, but not in groups larger than 10 according to a decision issued by deputy chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee Chu Xuan Dung.
Malls, fashion and cosmetics stores will also be allowed, but food and beverage establishments inside malls are still only allowed takeaways.
Residents and businesses in the city must abide by coronavirus control measures like wearing masks, keeping distances and scanning QR codes for health declarations.
The Hanoi Department of Health would be responsible for performing medical screening, for example Covid-19 testing every two to three days in locked down and high-risk areas, and boosting vaccination efforts.
As of September 27, the capital city has recorded 4,201 Covid-19 cases since the fourth coronavirus wave hit Vietnam in late April. The capital began relaxing its coronavirus restrictions starting September 21 after spending around two months under strict social distancing measures.
The capital city has vaccinated around 5.8 million people of its eight million people with one Covid-19 vaccine shot, and around a million people have been fully vaccinated, VNExpress reported.
