The move was taken due to a surge in the national caseload with more infections being detected at schools. 

Earlier, the city deferred in-person classes of grades one to six in urban districts amid the spike in the number of new infections.

The city of eight million people has documented nearly 466,000 infections, with the daily record soaring to around 12,000 patients from some 7,000 cases in the past seven days.

Chairman of the Ha Noi People's Committee Chu Ngoc Anh on February 27 warned the capital city would reach Covid-19 peak in the next weeks and the city's healthcare system could be overloaded without proper preparation.

The situation is increasingly serious in Ha Noi as more than 10,000 new Covid-19 patients have been recorded daily. However, 96% of the patients are mild cases that show no symptoms, and 95% are being treated at home./.
