HCMC - The Haiphong City government shut down nonessential services, including bar, Internet, game, disco, massage and karaoke, from today, May 1 to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

The order was issued last night, April 30 after some locally-transmitted Covid-19 cases had been reported, the local media reported.

The municipal government also ordered residents to wear face masks when they go out, while tasking the police of districts and wards with imposing harsh sanctions on those who violate the regulations on Covid-19 infection prevention and control.

The Cat Bi International Airport, coach stations, train stations and ports were also told to strictly follow anti-Covid-19 measures, including wearing face masks, keeping a safe physical distance of at least one meter and regularly washing hands with sanitizers; and refuse to transport passengers who fail to comply with the Covid-19 safety protocols.

Besides, the Haiphong Department of Health and the city’s districts were tasked with tightening the monitoring of concentrated quarantine centers to prevent cross infection and local transmission.

Many provinces and cities such as Hanoi, HCMC, Nam Dinh and Thanh Hoa have also ordered the suspension of nonessential services, including bar, pub and karaoke, until further notice.

In another development, Thai Binh Province has issued an urgent announcement to search for people who visited Tien La Temple in the province’s Hung Ha District on April 25.

The visitors arriving at the venue from 7.00 a.m. to 10.00 a.m. on the day were required to contact healthcare centers and health agencies for medical checkup and make health declarations.

On April 30, the Ministry of Health reported a Covid-19 case, a 58-year-old woman, who resides in Hung Yen Province. The patient, who was linked to a Covid-19 case in Ha Nam Province, visited Tien La Temple on April 25, leading to the announcement.
