Authorities refute rumor of curfew in Ho Chi Minh City
Recent rumors that authorities in Ho Chi Minh City request people to not leave homes between 10:00 pm and 5:00 am the next day are false, the municipal deputy chairman Duong Anh Duc says.
On Tuesday evening, an announcement titled 'New direction from the People’s Committee of Ho Chi Minh City' that included several restrictions on travel, public gatherings, transportation, education, and business activities was circulated on social media.
The ban on traveling outside between 10:00 pm and 5:00 am the next day was also among those mentioned in the list.
Ho Chi Minh City deputy chairman Duong Anh Duc immediately refuted the rumors later on the same evening, according to the Ho Chi Minh City Press Center.
Duc affirmed the municipal authorities did not issue any direction like the rumored announcement.
Giving the same refutation as Duc’s, the Department of Information and Communications of Ho Chi Minh City said it will coordinate with relevant functional forces to inspect and strictly handle the act of spreading false and fabricated information, affecting the city’s COVID-19 prevention and control.
