The Ha Noi mayor stressed the importance of taking precautionary measures, including conducting quick test, tracing contact, wearing face masks in public places, and washing hands.

In addition, regulations for receiving visitors from abroad, including quarantine, must be strictly applied.

The city’s government tasked relevant agencies to conduct necessary procedures for incoming foreign diplomats, experts, investors, high-skilled workers, foreign students and their relatives in the city. 

The city mayor said the city will keep people vigilant on the pandemic that remains unpredictable as Vietnam and Hanoi in particular are at high risk of imported transmission.

The city’s Department of Health needs to keep a close watch on the pandemic evolution by imposing the five-step regulation including preventing, detecting, quarantining, zoning, and stamping out.

The city will keep disseminating the "5K" message, that means Khau trang (face mask) - Khu khuan (disinfection) - Khoang cach (distancing) - Khong tu tap (no gatherings) - Khai bao y te (health declaration).

The document was released in response to the first local transmission case which occurred on November 30 in Ho Chi Minh City, ending a streak of 89 days of zero locally-transmitted infection./.
