Chairman of the municipal People’s Committee Chu Ngoc Anh signed a decision on March 15 as part of the capital city’s plans to achieve safe and flexible adaptation and effective control of COVID-19 and reopen tourism.  

However, the local authorities tasked districts and townships not to drop the guard against coronavirus and continue strictly enforcing COVID-19 rules, including the 5K message.

Food, beverage venues still need to observe COVID-19 preventive measures set out by health authorities.

Ha Noi continues to lead the country in daily new COVID-19 cases. In the past 14 days, the average daily confirmed cases in the city surged 477 percent against the previous two weeks to around 58,000.

However, the city has an extremely high vaccination rate. Over 99.6 percent of the population aged 12 years and older have been fully vaccinated. Meanwhile, 80 percent of adults have received booster shots. Fatality and hospitalization rates from the virus are also under control.

The city’s leaders also urge people who have developed suspect symptoms (fever, coughing, breathing difficulties, loss of taste and smell, etc.) not to participate in public activities. The number of attendees to busy events like weddings and funerals must remain limited.

The People’s Committee allows schools to go ahead with in-person learning plans, requiring that the highest safety must be guaranteed for both students and teachers./.
