Police raise public awareness about Covid-19 prevention
After the pedestrian streets were closed from August 21 the police in Hoan Kiem District inspected several locations such as parking lots and cafe bars and found many people violating Covid-19 prevention regulations.
Colonel Bui Van Dang, deputy head of the Hoan Kiem Police Department, said even though the weekend parking lots were closed and fewer people came to Hoan Kiem Lake, there were still many people at Vietnam-Germany Hospital and Hanoi Obstetrics Hospital so the risks remained.
On the morning of August 23 police fined 297 people for not wearing face masks in public and collected VND59.4m (USD2500). They also issued warnings to thousands of people who were exercising, going to markets or workplaces.
The police in Hang Bong and Hang Trong wards gave free face masks to travellers in front of the Vietnam-Germany Hospital. The police in 18 wards in Hoan Kiem District have continued co-operating with the medical centres to monitor busy areas around Hoan Kiem Lake and Dong Xuan Market.
