This was the last outbreak of COVID-19 virus in Ha Noi.

Previously, the People’s Committee of Thuong Tin District issued a decision on medical quarantine on Tren Hamlet, in Dong Cuu Village, beginning from April 16 due to Patient 266 having tested positive for SARS-CoV-2. Dong Cuu village comprised 572 households with 1,896 people. All people who have close contacts with Patient 266 received negative tests for SARS-CoV-2.

Local authorities and residents were asked to keep complying with protective measures against the spread of Covid-19, which is linked to the new coronavirus, and anyone who has had close contact with these cases must self-isolate at home. The local health authority still monitors and checks their health regularly, .

Ha Noi has not reported any fresh cases of Covid-19 in the community over the past 28 days. However, it still poses a possible risk because of the large number of people traveling to and from the city./.
